PAWN STREET is centered around a pawnshop in the Italian city of Turin and through the eyes of the recently hired Stefano we get a glimpse of the declining fortunes of the customers who are forced to pawn off their most treasured belongings for petty cash. Stefano also learns that his colleague Sergio is involved in shady dealings, which he must decide if he wants to report or join in on. Featuring stellar performances and an impressive eye for detail, Irene Dionisio's feature film debut is an arresting drama about money, desperation and social taboos.
