Baxtiyor (played by Baxtiyor Ixtiyorov) falls in love with a girl (Zulfiya) that he sees on TV. Deciding to find her, Baxtiyor travels across the Uzbek SSR with his father. They meet many different people and experience both funny and sad adventures, but do not find Zulfiya. Upon returning to Tashkent, Baxtiyor and his family move to a new flat from their old house which was located in an old part of the city. In the closing scene, Baxtiyor finds out that he and Zulfiya are neighbors in the new apartment block.
