Rubén is a lonely truck driver who has been covering for years the motorway from Asunción del Paraguay to Buenos Aires, carrying wood. However, today's journey will be different. This morning, in a motorway stop near Asunción, Jacinta shows up an hour later to begin a journey by track which is going to take her to Buenos Aires. Also, Rubén finds out at that very moment that Jacinta’s baby Anahí, who is 5 months old, will travel with them. It is not the best beginning, but as kilometres go by, the relationship between Rubén and Jacinta will grow. They slowly meet and enter each other's soul. It's a journey without many words, but it is not a silent one. Pablo Giorgelli’s “Las Acacias” won this year’s Golden Camera Award, that distinguishes the best debut of all sections of the International Film Festival Cannes.
