Plot
❶Viktor Navorski, a traveler from Krakozhia, arrives at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, only to find that his passport is suddenly no longer valid (突然無効になった) due to the sudden outbreak of a civil war (内戦) in his homeland.

❷As a result, the United States no longer recognizes Krakozhia as a sovereign nation (主権国家), and he is no longer permitted to either enter the country or return home as he is now considered to be stateless.

❸Due to his inability to communicate in proper English, the airport’s branch of the US Customs and Border Protection(税関と入管)seize both his passport and airline ticket, whereupon its temporary director, Frank Dixon, makes him stay in the terminal he came through.

❹Left with no other choice, Viktor decides to settle in at a closed off section of the terminal, Gate 67, with only his luggage and a peanut can, soon making a home out of it. Much to the frustration of Dixon, who is being considered for promotion to director of the US Customs branch, Viktor chooses not to break out of the terminal but wait patiently until he can legally enter the United States.

❺Dixon, who wants him to illegally (不法に) attempt to enter the country so he can deport (国外追放する) him, decides to try finding ways to make it difficult for him to survive in the terminal, slowly becoming obsessed in doing so.

❻During his initial days at the terminal, Viktor encounters and helps out a flight attendant named Amelia Warren after she slips on a wet floor and breaks the heel of her shoes, who assumes he is a contractor of sorts from the pager (ポケットベル) he was given by Customs but is surprised by his respectful kindness to her.

❼When Viktor is unable to secure himself some food after Dixon cuts him off from an avenue of money (お金を得る手段), his plight (苦境) is noticed by a food service worker at the airport, Enrique Cruz, who offers him food in exchange for helping in learning more about an immigration officer that he is infatuated with (夢中になっている), Dolores Torres.

❽After meeting with Amelia once again and wanting to take her out for a meal, Viktor begins improving his English while attempting to find work, and is soon hired by an airport contractor and paid under the table (内緒で支払う) after he impulsively remodeled a wall at a gate that was scheduled for future renovation.

❾During this time, he also befriends some of Enrique’s friends whom he plays poker with, including a cargo handler named Joe Mulroy, and an Indian janitor (雑役夫) named Gupta Rajan, learning from the latter that he had come to the States in order to avoid being arrested for assaulting a corrupt police officer back in India in 1979.

➓When a Russian traveler creates a delicate situation when Customs try to remove (取り上げる) the medicine he is carrying for his father, Dixon is annoyed when Viktor, whom he uses to persuade the man to leave the medicine behind, claims he misheard his Krakozhian dialect for “father” as “goat” so the traveler can leave with them.

この後も面白いですよ!続きは独学してください。
