WITHIN THE WHIRLWIND relates the true story of Yevgenia Ginzburg, a young woman who spends 18 years of her life in the gulag in Siberia during Stalin’s reign of terror. Having lost everything, and no longer wishing to live, she meets the camp doctor and begins to come back to life.

From Christine Ruppert, producer of THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND, Marleen Gorris, Academy Award winning director of ANTONIA'S LINE, and international star Emily Watson (BREAKING THE WAVES, HILARY AND JACKIE, ANGELA'S ASHES,THE PROPOSITION, and RED DRAGON), WITHIN THE WHIRLWIND bears witness to one woman's tenacious will to survive even in the most desperate of circumstances.
