So when her sometime suitor (Stanley Wayne Mathis) brings her, along with some rare Belgian chocolates and other supplies, two more women looking for refuge, she is not eager to take them on. “I don’t have room for another broken girl,” she snaps. And the two new women are indeed broken, or “ruined” in ways that would make them outcasts back in their villages. The older, Salima (Stephanie Weeks), has been used and abused by many men after being kidnapped from her home and her husband; the younger, Sophie (Bianca Sams), has been physically as well as mentally torn and is not really a practical acquisition for a brothel—except that she can sing a little.
