Big Sonia

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