Description
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.
