Shirley grew up in a small village in Eastern Europe and she was forced to flee Poland because of the Nazi threat. She moved to Montreal in 1938, armed with two suitcases and a few dollars. After finding the Canadian town too "provincial" for her taste, she ventured to New York, where she worked as a seamstress.
Reed says of his cousin, "She has been living in the same apartment for 46 years, which is about 18 blocks away from where I live. She is in a book about garment workers and the people who fought for the union. At the start of the movie the way she is speaking is almost like poetry: we suffered for this, we suffered for that, and it was like, 'Oh my God, that is a 100-year-old saying that and she deserves a statue, and then if not a statue, a movie'."
