have you seen dogville?
it's about this nice lady who comes to a small village in which their houses are drawn out like little cubicles in chalk on the ground.
she offers to help out with odd jobs in exchange for a place to stay.
the town says 'thanks, but we really can't think of anything for you to do.'
but once the town realizes they have a free slave on their hands, they immediately pile every job they can think of on top of her.
eventually she is tied to a wagon wheel, kept in a barn and repeatedly raped at the discretion of the men and to the mild but accepting consternation of the women.
been thinking of that movie a lot.
