Somewhere in Paraguay, middle-aged trucker Ruben picks up first a load of lumber bound for Buenos Aires way down south, and then countrywoman Jacinta, who's headed for the city in search of employment, with her 5-month-old daughter Anahi in tow. Although Ruben agreed to give them a lift, it's clear that he didn't expect a baby to be coming, and would gladly off-load them on a bus or even the side of the road if he could. Within the confines of the truck's cab, the three of them slowly get to know and like one another.
