Description

“A tenderly rendered inspirational piece about the healing power of human connections..."
- LA Times

“A funny, moving tribute to a great soul."- Boston Globe

“Filmed with great respect and palpable love for its subject." - Seattle Times

For years, Sonia Warshawski (91) has been an inspirational public speaker at schools and prisons, where her stories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager have inspired countless people who once felt their own traumas would leave them broken forever. But when Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop (in a dead mall), she's confronted with an agonizing decision: either open up a new shop, or retire. For a woman who admits she stays busy "to keep the dark parts away", facing retirement dredges up fears she'd long forgot she had, and her horrific past resurfaces. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, Big Sonia 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.
