When I was a child I had an idol: my aunt Adriana. In 2007, she was detained and I found out she worked for DINA in her youth, the secret police of dictator Pinochet. Later, already in democracy, she fled the country while facing a judicial process for the murder of an important communist leader. Now, my aunt is living a nightmare. In Australia, the Chilean residents request her extradition and march against her. The case has caused a media uproar. I didn’t realize how I was involved in her terrible past and now I’m part of her raving present. I have privileged access to the aggressors of dictatorship and I’m willing to reach the ultimate consequences to know the truth and to know who my aunt Adriana is really.
