For years Sonia Warshawski, aged 90, 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 long-forgotten fears and memories. Big Sonia explores what it means to be a survivor and how this affects families and generations.
