Storyline

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 thirty years. But when she's served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit 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.

Don't miss this film.

As harrowing as it is to face the inhumanity of our species, I feel we need to continue to do so. The beauty of this compelling and lovingly created film allows us to turn a lens on the worst of our history. It was stunning to find areas to uplift our spirits while dealing with the most despicable acts imaginable. Bravo Sonia! You bring light and hope to all who's paths you cross.
