All sorts of unlikely figures come to prominence in wartime, no matter what the country. Indonesia is no exception. In this comedy, popular Indonesian actor Deddy Mizwar plays Naga Bonar, a pickpocket who has seized the opportunity of the moment to declare himself a general in the Freedom Forces during the chaos of the Japanese occupying forces' withdrawal in 1945, as the Dutch attempted to reassert their control over the area. At first this is just a ruse enabling him to live a more glamorous life, but the effort to impersonate the role of a general brings out his better side, and this phony general becomes a true soldier, leading Indonesian forces to a victory over their oppressors by the end of the film.
