The GRIDSHOCK documentary was created to bring awareness and understanding and also empower parents and caretakers to recognize potential vulnerabilities in children and loved ones.


Did you know that Iowa is located in what the filmmakers call the “crosshairs” of the intersection of interstates 80/35, which they say makes it “uniquely suited to transport human cargo quickly and efficiently.”

 

Most importantly, Gridshock focuses on survivors. The film features real-life former trafficking victims who illuminate the dark networks that drive the trade. It’s a story of trauma and survival. It’s a cautionary tale. It’s a wake-up call.
