Reviews:  Twenty-four year old Dorothy - a kindergarten teacher born, raised and still working in Harlem - is celebrating Thanksgiving with her extended family. But she doesn't seem to be thankful for much in life. She lives a self-imposed sheltered life; she is comfortable but unfulfilled. Things change for her when she is caught up in a snowstorm chasing after her dog, Toto. Dorothy and Toto are transported to the mysterious land of Oz. She is informed that the only possible way to find her way back to New York is through the assistance of the powerful wizard. As Dorothy goes searching for the wizard, she befriends some creatures who are facing problems in life just like her. In their quest to find and get help from the wizard, they also face Evillene, the equally evil sister of the wicked witch Dorothy inadvertently killed when she entered Oz and who may be their biggest obstacle in achieving their dreams.
