You know the film “The Terminal” about the guy who gets to an airport without papers and then isn’t allowed to leave? That’s based on the true story of Merhan Karimi Nasseri who arrived at Charles de Gaulle in August of 1988 and lived within the confines of the airport until August 2006 when he was hospitalized.
