Big Sonia


Big Sonia - SC posterBig Sonia is a tiny woman with huge impact. Standing tall at 4’8″, Sonia Warshawski packs an oversized personality. Diva, business owner, and Holocaust survivor, Sonia is served an eviction notice for John’s Tailoring, the last (and most popular) shop inside a dying mall in suburban Kansas City. Sonia struggles with retirement, while her life lessons span generations.
