    • Synopsis
    • October 9, 2011: armed security forces attack peaceful demonstrators in Cairo. During the clashes of the so-called Maspero massacre, 20-year-old Mina Daniel dies alongside 26 other Coptic Christians. For many demonstrators, Daniel had been their great hope for the future, the Che Guevara of the Egyptian revolution. For his sister Mary, Mina’s death meant not only the end of a life, but also the start of something new. Over a period of two years, Mary Daniel is accompanied by the director on a journey through Egypt’s revolution. She documents years full of frustration and triumph, even more deaths and the oppressive grief of the victims who somehow still appear to be present.
