Alecia Faith Pennington is just like any other 20 year old. She wants to travel, she wants to get an education, and she wants to vote. But she's encountered one teeny tiny problem.
She doesn't exist.
Pennigton has no birth certificate, education records, or medical documents. She was born at her home in Texas to her parents, who never filed for a birth certificate or a social security number. Alecia, along with her 8 siblings, was home-schooled by her parents her entire life so she has no record of attendance at any school. Plus she's only seen a doctor once in her life and there is no record.
But how can this happen? How can this girl be completely undocumented, yet an American citizen?
Pennington's parents are what's know as "isolationists", which is an extreme form of Christianity. They keep themselves completely off the grid. Or at least that's what should be done.
But see, that's where this gets weird.
