Synopsis / Plot
In this version of the classic story - based on the smash Broadway musical - Dorothy is a 24-year-old Manhattan kindergarten teacher who is brought by a snowstorm to the mysterious Land of Oz, a sprawling, decaying, nightmarish, and dangerous megalopolis that resembles the physical characteristics of New York City. The re-telling of the tale includes various urban settings, and features themes of rising above one's background and the expectations of others.
