When her house accidently lands on the Wicked Witch of the East, everyone is exuberant, except the Wicked Witch of the West who seeks revenge for the death of her sister.
Things in Oz are strange and beautiful, but Dorothy just wants to get back home. To do this she must travel to the Emerald City where a great wizard lives.
