The story follows the journey of Elphaba, who is looked down upon because of her green complexion. She goes to school and meets the popular and blonde Glinda (pronounced GA-LIN-DA), where they are at odds as Elphaba seems to possess unique magic. After an accidental mistake that puts these two as roomies, atttitudes begin to change and they become two best friends.
