The 2018 German drama In The Aisles, takes a glimpse into the shared connections of a motley group of workers who spend their nights working in a big box superstore, quietly celebrating the beauty in the day-to-day and the collective pride people take in their jobs.

When the reclusive Christian (Franz Rogowski, Transit) takes a job working the night shift at a big box store, his new manager, Bruno from the Beverage Department (Peter Kurth, Babylon Berlin), teaches him the lay of the land and the delicacy it takes to operate a forklift. Christian becomes enamored by his charming but mysterious co-worker “Sweets Marion” (Sandra Huller, Toni Erdmann), with whom he begins to share flirtatious break room coffees and conversations. But Marion has secrets of her own and when she suddenly goes on sick leave, Christian is tempted to fall into habits of his dark past.

Co-written and directed by Germany’s Thomas Stuber, the film is based on All the Lights, a 2008 collection of short stories by award-winning German writer Clemens Meyer.
