"At first, I had no desire to come back - it was the pain." For many years, Ana Aravena Gross was not able to return to her home country. The pain had started the day she and her husband at the time were arrested by the secret police. The Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s henchmen came down hard on anyone they thought could be an enemy of the state. After she was released at the age of 22, she fled Chile for exile in Spain. Now she’s an architect, living and working in Berlin. She sets out on a journey back to a country that is now very different from the one she left behind.
