Sixty years after the war, a survivor is running and hiding again. . .

Prisoner of Her Past tells the haunting story of a secret childhood trauma resurfacing, sixty years later, to unravel the life of Holocaust survivor Sonia Reich. The film follows her son, Chicago Tribune jazz critic Howard Reich, as he journeys across the United States and Easter Europe to uncover why his mother believes the world is conspiring to kill her. Along the way, he finds a family he never knew he had.

This film is the first to illuminate a little-known illness, late-onset Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Prisoner of Her Past examines this disorder's devastating effect on victims and their families. in addition, the film highlights programs that are aiding young trauma survivors of Hurricane Katrina, in New Orleans - and how such early interventions may have helped Howard's mother.
