Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late.

Then, one day, Portia receives an unexpected call from her free-spirited college classmate John Pressman (Rudd). John runs an alternative high school that's home to some very gifted student. One such student is Jeremiah (Nat Wolff). John believes that Jeremiah could be the son that Portia gave up for adoption back in her youth. Meanwhile, as Portia puts her career in jeopardy by altering Jeremiah's transcript, an unexpected romance begins to blossom.
