Real Deal captures the pressure of the pursuit as buyers and sellers of rare collectibles haggle over the best price. Dealers must summon their expansive knowledge of antiques and human nature to clinch the deal. But it's the sellers who have the advantage. They can walk away from the table at any time and head straight to the auction block, where big money could be awaiting. But there's always the risk of going home with far less than the dealer offered or even empty-handed. Whether it's an autograph by Harry Houdini, a WWII German Storm Trooper dagger or a 19th century spittoon, everything that comes into the auction reveals something about an earlier time and the way people lived in the past.
