La Terraza Films is an independent film production company created on January 2018. Despite being a young company, in this short time La Terraza has earned a place in the Spanish film & TV industry.
It was born out of the concern of three long term professionals, Edmon Roch, Javier Ugarte and Cristóbal García. The three are responsible of some of the most successful Spanish productions of all time: EL NIÑO, TADEO JONES, SARA’S NOTEBOOK, YUCATÁN, SPANISH AFFAIR, CAPTURE THE FLAG, to name just a few.
La Terraza Films' main purpose is to produce high-quality productions, no matter the size; discover new talent; and contribute to the growth and good health of the Spanish film & TV Industry abroad. In 2018 – 2019 , already working together, La Terraza has produced two feature films: LE VOYAGE DE MARTA (STAFF ONLY) (Neus Ballús, 2019), a Spanish-French production that had its World Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival (Panorama); TAXI A GIBRALTAR (Alejo Flah, 2019), a coproduction between Spain and Argentina starring Daniel Rovira; and JUST BEFORE CHRIST (Pepón Montero y Juan Maidagán, 2019), an eight episode comedy series made for the Spanish Pay TV (Movistar +). At the same time, it signed a Production Service Agreement to shoot in Spain a part of Sally Potter’s new film MOLLY (Sally Potter, 2020).

But Manel does not give her any freedom, and also imposes a frenetic plan of activities (safaris, Senegalese folklore ...) along with the group of French pensioners who fill the resort. To take a break, Marta secretly plans a night out to a nightclub. She has the complicity of Bruno, her brother, and above all, the complicity and help of Khouma, a Senegalese man ten years older than her who works at the hotel filming the tourists' excursions.
