An Iowan filmmaker just hit her $35,000 goal for a film about sex trafficking in Iowa. Gridshock director Vanessa McNeal wants to tell the story of sex trafficking in our state, and shine a spotlight on the depth of the problem. McNeal tells CBS 2/FOX 28 news that she's overwhelmed with gratitude and looking forward to giving survivors a voice. She wants to thank the 270 donors (and counting) who are helping to make Iowa a better place.

While they hit their goal, they can still use more help. To contribute, visit the indiegogo page.
