Adnan has earned time off from his duty as a revolutionary soldier for shooting down a MiG fighter plane and now professes his love to the AK-47 rifle responsible for the shot, which he named Nancy. His girlfriend Lina is not happy about this other love, so she kicks him out. Over the next 24 hours, his commander tries to round up all the deserters and Adnan concocts a series of plans to retrieve Nancy, which he accidentally left in Lina's house.
