The movie stars include Bill Paxton playing William (Bill) Harding and Helen Hunt playing Dr. Jo Harding. All the supporting actors including Aunt Greene played by Lois Smith, Dr. Melissa Reeves played by Jami Gertz, Allan Sanders played by Sean Whalen, gave fantastic support to the lead actors of 'Twister' - Bill and Jo.

'Twister'starts with an F5 level tornado that leaves a family devastated. A little girl, Jo, watches her father succumb to the tornado that hits Oklahoma and destroys it. As Jo grows up, she is determined to find a solution to measure the intensity of tornadoes. She along with her husband Bill Harding builds a sensory device that can study what actually happens inside a tornado. First few minutes into the movie 'Twister', Jo Harding is seen fixing her machines. When Dr. Jo Harding says "She's here" the audience presume 'she' is the daughter of Bill and Jo. But surprisingly 'she' is a weather device - Dorothy, that Bill Harding had designed with his years of experience following the tornadoes. In 'Twister' movie, Dorothy carries sensors, which when sucked up into the tornado can give data to the scientists to predict future tornadoes. The entire movie revolves around the lead pair, trying to get their invention into the tornado and test it. Do they really achieve the feat? Are they heading for divorce? What happens to Dorothy? Will they become successful with their invention? All these questions keep the audience hooked to the screens as the plot slowly unfolds.
