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. When she’s served an eviction notice, the spectre 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 and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.
Light refreshments provided.
