A theatrical laboratory is taking place in a kindergarten. The teachers are telling the story of Dorothy’s adventures in the magical land of Oz. The audience is composed of children aged three to five, all of whom were born in Italy to non-Italian parents. They attend the Carlo Pisacane kindergarten, located in the heart of Torpignattara, an old, working-class section of Rome that today is inhabited by a growing number of immigrant families: a factor that increases the unrest. And as the theatrical laboratory continues, the school becomes an item of national interest.
