In a time when creditors have closed their purse strings and stopped lending, the residents of Detroit know they can always rely on American Jewellery and Loan, ‘the working man’s bank’. The Gold family and their employees never know what to expect when people’s personal items are on the line and conflicts escalate. This programme takes us into the zany world of a large, lucrative pawn shop and the amazing people who bring in everything from alligators to prosthetic limbs. Every pawn ticket has a story, and there are over 40,000 stories in the warehouse to tell.
