Cannes Film Festival's Caméra d’or Winner "Las Acacias" at the Tower Theater

From September 7 through 13, 2012.

Rubén (Germán de Silva) is a truck driver who for years has been freighting wood on the motorway between Paraguay and Argentina. One morning, his boss asks him to give Jacinta a ride to Buenos Aires. A loner, Rubén does not like the idea of sharing the road with an unknown woman.

To make matters worse, Jacinta is a single mother travelling with her 8 month-old daughter, Anahí. For Rubén, the journey soon promises to become a nightmare. But the little baby is endearing, her smile clear as spring water. She is one of these special and rare human beings that create solutions, not problems. As miles go by, with the help from little Anahí, Rubén and Jacinta gradually develop a warm friendship.
