What is it that ties us to the state where we currently live and adopt it as the one we're "from"? How does living in our states define us? States of America is a series of short documentaries--one from each of our 50 states--that ask these questions by featuring everyday people as diverse as the landscape in the places they call home.
Growing up in a military family, Kelly lived in twelve different states as a child. After college she was anxious to put down roots and chose a rural community in Vermont to start a new life. A husband and two sons later, she built a house herself on a remote plot of land and hopes to give her family a connection to place she never had.
