Description or Abstract
This is an audio documentary about the life of a street food vendor in Egypt, touching on the food, the struggle, the dream and the people on the street. Manal Ghareeb, also known as Dahab, is a college-educated woman who didn't have connections to keep a stable corporate job. So, she decided to open a street food cart in Downtown Cairo to make ends meet. This documentary sheds light on the life of a female street food vendor in Egypt, touching on the food, the people on the street and her aspirations. But, perhaps, most importantly, the documentary demonstrates the struggle the average Egyptian has to go through in order to put food on the table.
