LAS ACACIAS tells the story of a long distance lorry driver (German de Silva) who agrees to drive a woman (Hebe Duarte) and her 5 month old child en route from Paraguay to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

A subtle and tender road movie exploring loneliness and the pain of loss, LAS ACACIAS grows into a intense and poignant tale about a passing encounter between two strangers and the unlikely bond that grows between them.
