SYNOPSIS: With Sacramento as its backdrop, WHIRLPOOL is a compelling drama that follows the life of Malik Johnson, a complicated man with a deep secret that threatens to destroy his family at any moment.

After suffering from a traumatic and haunting accident from his youth, Malik struggles in his adulthood to live a normal life that is not riddled with guilt.

Within time, he reunites with an old friend from high school who persuades him to take part in an event that has life-altering consequences for all involved.

This is a cautionary tale about the power of lies and the lengths people go to maintain them.
