Asier and I grew up together in the troubled streets of the Basque Country during the eighties. Later in life we went our separate ways. In 2002 Asier disappeared, he had become a member of ETA. Then he was arrested and imprisoned in the France. He spent the next eight years in prison. During that time, I talked a lot whit my friends about how special our friendship was for me. But often, the conversation led to questions for which I found no answer.
