The gritty story takes place in the final days of apartheid where young girls are sold to Iranian sheiks in exchange for oil.
The girls are then traded off to low-end brothels after the sheiks have decided they’ve had enough. It is a disturbing story that is bound to unsettle viewers.
40+ million trafficked each year.
75% are women.

“Everyone in this film is damaged at their core, hiding a raw history that must simmer behind the eyes and bleed through their movements and speech which are stifled by their past,” Marsh said.
The film’s marketing team has also attached itself to the South African #AmINext movement. A social media campaign that spreads light on gender-based violence, missing women alerts, abuse, and femicide in the country.
Many of our followers have asked what “I Am All Girls” is about and why our social media launch focused on the South African #AmINext movement. “I Am All Girls” is a film to be released by South African based Nthibah Pictures in 2020 that shines a light on #humantrafficking. pic.twitter.com/5x31ToRDqw
