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.


“Engaging and thoughtful”


“This is not like any other Holocaust survivor film you’ve seen, and, if you’re like me, you’re not likely to forget “Big Sonia” any time soon.”

– Janice Convoy-Hellmann
