Welcome to the murky world of moneylenders in modern-day Britain.Prepare yourself to enter a cold, hard, brutal environment where a loan od GBP10,000 can turn into a debt of GBP100,000 in a matter of weeks.
This is the true story of one family man who found himself trapped in a finanical meltdown that was beyond his worst nightmares.
Jason Shifrin was brought up in a happy, solid family where his hard-working father provided everything a middle-class family could ever need.
Business tycoon Alan Sugar was a childhood family friend who Jason dreamed of emulating in the high-risk arena of big business.
When Jason's early attempts at becoming a self-made tycoon failed, it led to him spending half his adult life running from the mob after getting into debt to gangster moneylenders to the tune of almost ten million pounds. As a result, Jason leads a bizarre double life as a loving husband and father, while also having to be the ultimate ducker and diver, afraid of his own shadow in case a bullet has his name on it.
In order to survive, Jason even hired the services of one of the country's most notorious criminals to keep all the other gangsters off his back. Money, Money, Money presents a portrait of a middle-class Jewish boy trapped in a deadly world of violent, trigger-happy criminals.
