Sonja is an impressionistic miniature about a lonely woman, whose fate has played a mean trick on her, which at the same time has become the biggest happiness of her life.
Sonja is a little dense, a little ugly, a little lonely. But she does have some talents: she is an excellent cook and seamstress, and is great at getting on people’s nerves. Then one day she receives a love letter, passionate and serious, and Sonja’s heart is aflame. Little does she realize that the letter was written by the evil friend Ada. The letter changes Sonja’s life forever.
