Abstract: There are over 230 pawnshops in Singapore – the same number of NTUC Fairprice supermarkets islandwide. As ubiquitous as pawnshops are in Singapore, many know little to nothing about the stories inside. Pawnshops hold tales of the desperate, the reckless and even the whimsical. We unpeel layers of the business to reveal a space where intimate stories converge – from parents pawning their jewellery to pay for their child’s education, to gamblers trying to fund their subsequent bets. Through exploring the lives of customers who pass through Heng Seng Pawnshop, the film unveils a less known side of society.
