Brianna Olguin never thought she would leave her hometown of Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico. One day while at school the MTV show The Buried Life and Contiki Vacations surprised her with a plane ticket and a rush trip to the passport office turning her dream of visiting Italy into a reality.
Her father, a painter, had instilled in her the desire to see the world and see the works of the great Italian masters. With the help of The Buried Life and Contiki’s Italian Espresso adventure, she did. This moving, coming of age story unfolds as her journey abroad exploring Italy is documented by award winning filmmaker Jay Salbert ending in tears at the Vatican.
