Christian is a loner with a troubled past, a fighter and misfit with an awkward manner. Starting a new chapter of his life, he begins working as a shelf stacker at a warehouse superstore, with his brightest prospect being the opportunity to operate a forklift. Yet for Christian, who has lingered at the very margins of society, even this is a great challenge. His mentor is Bruno, an old lag who initiates the rookie into the microcosm of the workplace, governed by specific rules and divided into the bubbles of its departments. One day, Christian develops a crush on Marion, a charming and flirtatious employee from the delicatessen. In der Gängen (In the Aisles) is a tender, unpretentious and realistic romance, set in a place from which the sky cannot be seen.
