Introverted Leo (Mark Leonard Winter) is a steelworker at his small town’s local plant. After his wife abandons him without explanation, leaving him to care for their 2 young children, he struggles to keep the household running.  
When an Italian colleague suggests that his sister, Maria (Silvia Colloca), act as surrogate homemaker, Leo reluctantly accepts. But can one woman’s warm, nurturing presence fill the void left by another, and can Leo yield to the winds of change? 
Co-written by The Slap author Christos Tsiolkas, this affecting period drama distils the many upheavals of 1970s Australia – from immigration and postwar settlement to urbanisation and the women’s liberation movement – into a narrative about one man’s struggle to adapt. 
‘Small and quiet, Little Tornadoes is a deeply personal film with a strong emotional pull’ - FilmInk 

Following the screening will be a special Q&A with director Aaron Wilson
