Hanks stars as Viktor Navorski, an Eastern European tourist who arrives at JFK airport in New York as war breaks out in his country, leaving him caught up in international politics. Because of the war, the Department of Homeland Security won't let him enter or exit the United States. He's trapped at JFK -- indefinitely. While living inside the airport, Viktor finds himself falling for a flight attendant played by Catherine Zeta-Jones.
