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. Big Sonia explores what it means to be a survivor and how intergenerational trauma affects families and generations. Will you let your trauma define you? Or will your past make you stronger?
