The Screen Guide

A man wakes up on an isolated beach, he doesn't know how he got there. On the beach is a black, female mannequin. The mannequin is an avatar used by an alien to communicate with the man. The alien has kidnapped the human and turned him into a pet. The "beach" is actually an enclosure in which he cannot escape. The alien names the human "Doug" and this is his new life. Like all good pet stories, Doug is loved at first but then starts to be neglected as the alien's life gets too busy!!
