good morning

Imagine this, a young black woman is put on a deserted, arid and rocky island by a gang of men (pirates?). Regularly, once a week or so their ship docks the tiny island. Shawna is a sex slave.

They meet the "tourists". Those white, aging plump and flabby people in sandals and shorts, women with coifed curly hair and big sun glasses, are very compassionate.
