BIG SONIA is a documentary film about a tiny woman with huge impact
Standing tall at 4’8″, Sonia Warshawski is a tiny woman with a huge personality. Diva, business owner and Holocaust survivor, Sonia has just been served an eviction notice for John’s Tailoring, the last (and most popular) shop of a dying mall in suburban Kansas City.
Sonia struggles with retirement, while her life lessons span generations.

“Such a beautiful documentary… an unexpected and vital exploration… in a time we need it most. I love Sonia!”
