In Tom Hanks’ movie “The Terminal” Hanks plays Viktor Navorski a man from a fictional country called Krakozhia. While Hanks is flying from his home country to the U.S., there is a coup in Krakozhia and the government is overthrown. The U.S. refuses to acknowledge the new government and, as a result, Hanks can neither enter American soil (even though he is at JFK airport) nor return “home” because he no longer has a valid passport. Hanks can look out the windows of the airport and see New York City. When doors open he can hear sounds of car horns, but, as close as he is, he cannot enter. He is stuck in the terminal … so close to his destination but, yet, so far away.

Sometimes close is not good enough ... there is no consolation prize ... you might as well be a million miles away.
