Facing debt and bills, newlywed Eli Gottfried is tasked with the graveyard shift at Stafford Stoneworks, The pressure of increasingly deteriorating machines, a crushing schedule, and a recurring nightmare may be too much for Eli to handle. When a suspicious co-worker is severely injured, Eli finds his only solace in the perspective of a stranded (and equally suspicious) stranger. Moody and textural, The Nocturnal Third is a slow-burn workplace thriller that begins with a seemingly domestic situation and meticulously transforms into a tense neo-noir. This gripping story of corporate espionage takes a young man through a single harrowing night as he faces the limits of the human body, his own future, and his role in a system that is beginning to break down. 

Written, directed, and edited by Benjamin Stark, The Nocturnal Third was shot entirely in North Alabama.
