Within the Whirlwind is based on the true story of Eugenia Ginzburg, a young Russian literature professor 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 camps doctor and begins to come back to life.
