Marketing communication is about the tools or methods you use to deliver your message to the targeted market.
You have two types
A) Above the Line: Include Billboards, TV, Print
B) Below the Line: Radio, Posters, Brochures, Trade shows, exhibitions e.t.c
Inorder to have all the above work work in an intergrated manner you have to have a plan of when to use which and who you are actually targeting.
A marketing plan on the other hand is wider than that ..... the communication plan is part of the execution process of the marketing plan

I think wdarina has given u a good example of a macomm plan.
As eloquence mentioned the macomm plan is aimed at briefing all the suppliers responsible in the marketing mix about the whole campaign. What is the focus of the campaign, what budget they get, who they work close with, who is the most important and what are the delieverables.
It's meant to be concise , who what where, when, why,how...
The suppliers/players are advertising agents, PR, sponsorship, marketing research, Word of mouth, product recall issues, lobbying issues, direct marketing people and so on.
