The Wizard of Oz

The action starts in Kansas where Dorothy is whisked away to the land of Oz.

Dorothy, an orphan who lived with her uncle and aunt in Kansas, was accidentally brought by a cyclone, as the cyclone lifted the house Dorothy and her dog, Toto, were in, to the Land of Oz. The house accidentally landed on a Wicked Witch of the East and killed her, which made the Munchkins freed from the Wicked Witch slavery. Despite the beauty of the Land of Oz and the gratefulness of the Munchkins, Dorothy still wanted to go back to Kansas. Thus the Good Witch of the North, which came to the Land of the East after the Munchkins sent her a message about the incident, suggested Dorothy to see the Great Wizard in the City of Emerald and ask him for help. So then with the kiss of the Good Witch of the North on her forehead, and the silver shoes of the killed Wicked Witch of the East on her feet, she went to see the Great Oz...and her adventures begin.
