Ruben, a lonely middle-aged trucker who's picking up a load of lumber in Paraguay to take back to Buenos Aires, grudgingly agrees to take two passengers: Jacinta, a young Aboriginal mother and her five-month-old baby, Anahi. At first glance, the 1500 kilometer journey seems very long, both for Jacinta, who hopes to find work with the help of her cousin in Argentina, as well as for the surly trucker, whose routine is disrupted. But along the way, Ruben, Jacinta and Anahi slowly get to know one another, and the usually quiet Ruben gradually opens up.

  • 5 stars "The film "Las Acacias" is wonderful. To see Hebe Duarte acting with German de Silva and Nayra moved my soul deeply.... The end with this special atmosphere is so nice and in my opinion we can see one of the greatest ways to say: "I want to stay with you...I am lonely....- Thank you Senor de Silva. All the best to the film-crew and to Senora Duarte, to Senor de Silva and to Nayra- brilliant! B.Prasuhn/ Bremerhaven/ Germany"
