This colorful VeggieTales twist on The Wizard of Oz reworks the Biblical parable of the Prodigal Son, as taught by Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. At the center of the movie is the character of Darby, the son of a Kansan floss farmer, who wishes to travel to the strange and enchanted land of Ha's and to meet the Wizard who can make dreams come true - though doing so means directly disobeying his father's orders. Once there, he meets a series of characters including a cotton candy-loving lion and a tin man who loves roller coasters. Just like the Prodigal Son, however, Darby will soon learn the meaning of heeding his father's wisdom - and the value of parental forgiveness.
