Returning to the themes, I Am All Girls grasps what is at stake in the world of child sex trafficking and the terror that is institutionalized in certain parts of the globe. It’s a reminder of what’s at stake because, despite the horrors of past slavery being eradicated, it still exists in many different ways that we can’t forget in today’s world. The film’s execution ensures that the viewer knows how powerful these syndicates are and how they can really take a toll on those attempting to track them down. Director Donovan Marsh intentionally makes it as murky as possible.
What draws the viewer in is the cynicism she faces; we’ve seen it all before: a tired, frustrated investigator who seems outright insane as she “connects the dots,” and her superiors frown and slyly recommend “a break” or medical assistance. However, her cynicism is not completely justified; the murdered men she discovers have grotesque and bleeding initials carved on their stomachs, and they are somehow connected to a child sex trafficking ring. There’s no denying that there’s a link.
Even though the subject matter and theme raise considerable interest, it does follow the lines of a traditional detective tale. It primarily tracks Jodie (Erica Wessels), a special crimes detective with a hunch: after a string of murders, she believes the serial killer is dropping clues to aid authorities in bringing down a global child sex trafficking ring.
