Viktor Navorski, a man from the fictional country of Krakozhia, arrives at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, only to discover that during the flight his Eastern Bloc country's government has been overthrown by rebels, invalidating his passport and thus leaving him stranded and stateless. Due to his poor English, he at first cannot understand what is happening, but is explained the situation through both news broadcasts and by the immigration services. Over the next nine months, Viktor is forced to live in the terminal building, unable either to set foot into the United States or to go home. He befriends the staff at the terminal, including flight attendant Amelia Warren, while being under the watchful eye of Immigration Officer Frank Dixon, who wants the "Navorski problem" removed from the airport. This document contains two scenes between Viktor and Amelia.
