Sonia Warshawski at ninety has been an inspirational public speaker at schools and prisons for years. Her stories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager have inspired countless people who once felt their own traumas would leave them broken forever. When Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop, she’s confronted with an agonizing decision: either open up a new shop, or retire. Staying busy has kept the dark parts away. Now that Sonia faces retirement, her horrific past resurfaces.
