With a nod to The Wizard of Oz, German journalist Dorothee (Ina Blum) writes about the perils of finding love. Her research takes her from Germany deep into San Francisco's lesbian culture, where she meets Ramona (Shelly Mars). From here Dorothee finds herself on a romantic and sensual journey of self-awareness.
