Little Dorothy lives with her uncle Henry and Aunt Emma in Kansas. During a big storm, a tornado transports her to a distant land. Dorotka wants to return home, but the only one who can help her is the great wizard Oz from the Emerald City. And so Dorotka sets out on a yellow brick road to the wizard. Along the way, she meets Scarecrow, who longs to gain a brain, a Tin Woodman, who would like to have a heart, and the Cowardly Lion, who longs for courage. Dorotka and her friends discover that Oz is, in fact, an ordinary person without magical abilities. Nevertheless, he gives the Scarecrow brain, heart to the Tin Woodman, and courage to the lion, because they actually already possess them.
