Synopsis:

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year- old Sonia Warshawski – great-grandmother,
businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor – runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than 30
years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to resist
her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma
and healing, BIG SONIA also offers a laugh-out- loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph
over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.
