For years, Sonia Warshawski has been a public speaker at schools, churches and prisons, where her stories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager have inspired countless students, prisoners and ex-cons. But when Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop, which has thrived in the bottom of a now-abandoned mall for 35 years, she is confronted with an agonizing decision: either open up a new shop—at age 90—or retire. For a woman who admits that she stays busy “to keep the dark parts away,” facing retirement dredges up fears she’d long forgotten. 93 min. USA Website/trailer.
