Om Amira, “Amira’s Mother,” is now a Cairo resident living on one of Downtown’s roof tops with her husband, Gamal, and their two daughters. Having no other option but to toughen up to support her family and her sick daughter who has heart disease, Om Amira sells homemade fried potatoes sandwiches in a side street, meters away from Tahrir Square where the spark of the Egyptian Revolution started.
