Big Sonia

Big Sonia

Directed by Leah Warshawski, Todd Soliday

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 an eviction notice and looming retirement prompt Sonia to face her harrowing past. This poignant story of generational trauma 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.

Holocaust survivor Sonia has run her tailor shop for 35 years. But an eviction notice and looming retirement prompt Sonia to face her harrowing past.
