After a cyclone hits her house, Dorothy is transported to the magical land of Oz where she meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion who help her on her journey to defeat the wicked Evillene, and find her way home. “Ease on down the road” with Dorothy and her friends to find a world full of love, like yours, like mine – like home!
