The film is spoken in Guarani, with sub-titles in English and Spanish and tells the story of the popular myth of "silver yvyguy" of the War of the Triple Alliance; and is the new phenomenon of the popular Paraguayan cinema, after "7 boxes". "Latas Vacias/Empty Cans", tells the story of Alfonso, a man devoted and believer of the legend and in his search, Alfonso finds a buried treasure, but he himself is taken away by a thief who destroys his brother's life.
