Whirlwind explores the life of twenty-year-old Isabelle Summers and her struggle with mental illness predominantly through flashbacks, in which she is in her second year of college. Reeling from a recent tragedy, Isabelle notices her life taking a turn for the worst. She's starting to abhor the person she is becoming.

She has intense mood swings, bursts of inappropriate anger, and emotions that seem to burn too bright too fast. Her life is marred by toxic relationships, promiscuity, impulsivity and substance abuse.

Isabelle is becoming her worst nightmare.

The question is, can Isabelle save herself before the tumultuousness of her life catches up to her?
