An Eastern European refugee arriving in New York City must take up residence inside John F. Kennedy Airport after his native country ceases to exist.

Viktor Navorski, a man hailing from the war-torn Eastern European republic of Krakozhia, arrives in New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport to find that his passport is invalid thanks to the United States' refusal to continue recognizing his homeland as a sovereign nation. Prohibited from returning home and unable to exit the airport, a hapless Navorski becomes a de facto squatter in a terminal with nothing more than the clothes on his back, his luggage, and a can of peanuts, befriending various airport workers and patrons and drawing the ire of American customs officials as he bides his time waiting for a way out of his predicament.
