After living in Seville, Spain for some time and beginning to pay attention to some troubling signs, Chelsea determines that it is time to leave that city. As an artist and a creative, she finds that life in Seville is a little stale, affecting not only her art, but also every fiber of her being. So, she decides on a new life plan; one that will allow her to travel all over the world, practice her art, meet new people and build community with them. And she is going to do it all with her best pal, her motorcycle - Fenice. Feeling freer than she ever has, Chelsea and her trusty companion take the next big step by journeying to Salamanca and San Sebastian in Spain, later to Bordeaux and Lyon in France. Then through the Alps in Italy, she travels through Turin, Asti and Genoa, her hometown. They set off towards La Maremma in Tuscany, so excited for what the world has to offer. But, Chelsea’s new life and lifestyle are almost brought to an abrupt halt when a catastrophic event occurs while she and Fenice are riding - alone - in the Apennine mountains. Will Fenice come back to life or will Chelsea lose hers before it really has a chance to begin?
