Editors Note In Aruba, far from the tourists, lies a refinery boomtown of brothels and flexible morality. A young Colombian mother works as a prostitute to pay her family's debt. She encounters an American expatriate looking to perpetuate his flamboyant youth. Together they find a tugboat captain, washed ashore and barely alive after his ship sinks in a storm. An Island Away uncovers the flip side of paradise where hard choices are made and lives change forever. Original.
Editors Note 1 In Aruba, far from the sparkling beaches and glamorous hotels, lies a waning refinery boomtown of barroom brothels, flexible morality, and one tourist trap known as Charlie's Bar. Luz, a young Colombian mother works as a prostitute to pay off her family's debt. She encounters Sam, an American expatriate looking to perpetuate his flamboyant youth. Together they find Captain Nathan Beck, washed ashore and barely alive after his tugboat sinks in a storm. For each of them, San Nicolaas provides hope amid desperation as they live dangerously in pursuit of their dreams. Through it all, Charlie's watchful eye sees the best and worst, knowing that on his desert island you have to improvise.
