Dorothy Gale, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a tornado hits her farm and carries her away over the rainbow to another world. Join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion and Toto as they search for their hearts’ desires and defeat the Wicked Witch of the West.
