The Terminal

When Viktor's country undergoes a coup, he becomes trapped in the international terminal of NYC, unable to enter America or return home. Days drag into months, and Viktor makes friends, falls in love, has adventures, and impacts the lives of all he deals with. I'll be the first to admit that this is nothing more than sentimentalist dribble (is that all Steven Spielberg will touch these days?) with a tag of ""based on a true story"" and yet I did find it an enjoyable distraction.
