American journalist Paul Kemp takes on a freelance job in Puerto Rico for a local newspaper during the 1960s and struggles to find a balance between island culture and the expatriates who live there.
The final black and white still shot at the very end of the movie is not Puerto Rico, where the movie takes place, but Aruba. The author is shown sitting on a bench at the Aruba Palm Beach Club with a bottle of Amstel beer. The Aruba Caribbean Hotel, in the background, was the first resort hotel constructed on Palm Beach. The author visited Aruba while living in Puerto Rico. The photo is also the book's cover photo.
We'll nail this bastard to his own front door.
When Kemp prepares to get breakfast with Hal Sanderson, he puts on his glasses. In the next shot, the glasses are gone. He stands up and picks up them up from the table.
