the linkages to either the handles or the lock or both has come off. here's the kicker... you need to open the door to take of the inside door pannel to fix it. try to remove the pannel with the door closed. or a "skilled" vheicle locksmith could open it from the outside...but it's not cheap.

If the door won't open from the inside, then maybe it's due to the child safety locks. If it won't open from the outside, then maybe it's locked, or the door handle mechanism has broken, as it has on my 1998 Civic. From the inside, you might be able to remove the screw holding the handle and slide the handle set forward to remove it from the door.
