In Isabella Carbonell’s Tornado a young woman spends her days running aimlessly up and down the streets of Stockholm, and the nights alone in her apartment with her disabled dog. One day something interrupts her running routine as she sees a man that she recognizes from her past. A boiling point approaches as she starts following him.
