An exploration of exile, longing and democracy through the words and memories of playwright, author and activist Ariel Dorfman. The program documents the remarkable story of Ariel Dorfman, the Argentinean-born author who was raised in New York, but exiled to Chile during the Red Scare of the 1950s - a happening which inexorably altered the course of his entire life. It was in Chile that Dorfman became a cultural advisor to the chief of staff of Socialist Chilean president, Salvador Allende. On September 11, 1973, the Chilean military led by General Augusto Pinochet, attacked the democratically appointed government, staging a coup against socialist president Salvador Allende. Allende anticipated the violence, and the government's key figures were called to stand against their attackers and face certain death. Ariel Dorfman should have been called. However, he later discovered his name was removed from the list so he would live to tell the story of what had happened.
