Holocaust survivor. Grandma. Diva. BIG SONIA.
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.
“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
