Synopsis:

A ferocious tornado catapults a young girl down a yellow brick road and across the paths of Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, and Cowardly Lion. All she really wants is a one-way ticket home, but what she gets is an adventure that will lead her and her newfound friends past the wickedest of witches to a presumably omnipotent Wizard in the glittery, magical, miraculous land of Oz.
