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. This is a story of Wyoming.
People come to Jackson, Wyoming for many different reasons; for Sven it was simply the promise of a high-paying summer job. Although he didn't find riches, he discovered a passion for the wilds of an American frontier and the Teton Mountains. Like many Jacksonites, he’s seeking balance between paying the high bills and pursuing the next peak.
