Tahun 1947 menjadi tahun kedua setelah Indonesia menyatakan kemerdekaan pada 17 Agustus 1945. Pada tahun tersebut, Indonesia telah memiliki Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Udara (TNI-AU) yang menjadi bagian dari kekuatan militer nasional. Cerita berkisar pada Sutardjo Sigit (Bisma Karisma), Mulyono (Kevin Julio), Suharnoko Harbani (Omara Esteghlal), Bambang Saptoadji (Marthino Lio) yang menjadi kadet di sekolah penerbangan Maguwo milik TNI AU di Yogyakarta di tahun 1947. Para pemuda ini berharap, suatu hari mereka dapat lulus pendidikan dan resmi menjadi seorang penerbang angkatan udara. Suatu hari di bulan Juli 1947, Belanda melakukan serangan militer ke sejumlah titik di wilayah Jawa dan Sumatera karena ingin merebut kembali wilayah tersebut. Peristiwa ini mengorbankan banyak penduduk, termasuk bangunan di bandara Maguwo yang dijatuhi bom. Para kadet pun bertekad untuk melakukan serangan balasan ke markas Belanda yang ada di sekitar Semarang, Salatiga, dan Ambarawa, melalui udara. Para kadet yang belum resmi menjadi angkatan udara ini kemudian menyusun strategi penyerangan dan memperbaiki sejumlah pesawat perang peninggalan tentara Jepang secara diam-diam, dengan bantuan dari teknisi pesawat Kaput (Fajar Nugra) dan penembak udara Dulrachman (Chicco Kurniawan) serta sersan udara Sutardjo (Wafda Saifan). Perjuangan mereka dimulai dari sini.
