Antillean Green Card

Paths cross daily. Some encounters are casual. Others have serious, life-changing implications.

Antillean Green Card (a.k.a. Troubled Waters) is the story about Charlene Walker, a young woman who fled Holland from her abusive husband to seek refuge in St. Maarten.

An anxious Charlene is unaware that the law has changed for Holland citizens since the island obtained country status, and she finds herself stranded at the airport. The chief immigration officer, Jeff Hopkins, a man of integrity and exemplary service is torn between the new law and whether to help this woman he doesn’t even know.

He encounters Charlene on the anniversary of his wife’s death. Jeff wants to move on with his life with his daughter, and Charlene will do whatever it takes to remain on St. Maarten. However, Jeff finds out that there are people in his own department who are secretly plotting his demise.
