What happens when a random group of young people find themselves trapped in a game of Twister, in an unidentifiable holding space, proctored by two rather unpleasant and ageless sisters?

Hannah Jennison, Emily McDermott, Kate Oelkers, Spencer Cox, Sarah Wells, Liddy Wade, Darren Badley, Zane Buono

The prototype for Bus Stop, a 1956 hit Hollywood film starring Marilyn Monroe, People in the Wind explores eight varied and interesting characters in the roadside diner of a rural Kansas town.
