Rainbow, a new Spanish movie on Netflix released September 30, 2022, is a modern take on The Wizard of Oz.
Dora Postigo plays Dorothy’s character in the book Dora, and Carmen Machi and Carmen Maura play the two witches and other roles. Paco Leon directed the film, which was mainly based around a road trip and had several musical scenes.
Although it’s not one of the best versions of The Wizard of Oz, it uses a lot of metaphors that are difficult to understand. That’s why we made a list of everything that happened at the end of Rainbow.
At the beginning of the story, the main character has a simple goal: she must find her mother. So she embarks on an exciting road trip that will help her grow up. The challenges and people she encounters ultimately shape her personality. Even worse for her, there are also two witches involved, and one of them wants Dora’s blood.
Is everything going as Dora imagined? What are the problems she must solve before she can find peace of mind? Find out what she wants at the end of the yellow brick road by reading on (which is a bit more metaphorical than literal in this movie).
How does the rainbow end?
Dora’s life takes another serious turn after she travels a long way to find her mother and is accused of killing the second richest man in the country. She learns that her whole life has been a lie and that her current father is not her real father. When she is released from police custody because the charges against her turn out to be insignificant after watching the night’s CCTV recording, she also decides to leave her father.
At the end we learn that two thirds of Mr. Arturo Weizeg Molina’s inheritance goes to his only daughter Dora. All because Maribel decided to do a DNA test. Coco Cabrera got half the money, but only until Dora turned 18. The will states that Miss Cabrera also gets the last third. They are said to be “the sole owners of the W business conglomerate.”
Maribel and Coco had already broken up, but she comes back to the villa to get her last things. Coco sees this as a chance to get her back on her side. After fooling them for so long, she plays the victim card again by saying that now that she’s old, she can’t go on without her help. This is just a flashy way for her to get closer to Dora later.
The two decide to throw a party to celebrate the start of a new era in their business and to welcome Dora to the family. On the day of the party, Coco toasts Arturo’s wealth and mixes poison into Dora’s drink. However, Dora is still nervous about all the changes in her life. She can’t seem to get used to this new, glamorous way of life. She sniffs at the drink and throws the glass away.
She walks up to a piano on the lawn and starts playing a happy song that gets everyone dancing. She finally seems to have powers. In the end, things also start to float. After a few seconds, Coco gets sick and falls into the pool. It turned out that Maribel had also poisoned her drink.
Also, the lion that Dora saw comes to life and scares everyone away from the party, leaving only Maribel sitting by the pool with Coco’s body floating in the water. Since the lion does not bother her when she is sitting, it seems that she is the one who made the lion appear. She never cared about the money or all those parties.
She decides to live with her biological father again after her boyfriend urges her to do so. On the way home, she stops at a snack bar and orders a cup of latte. She can’t help but give the waitress a stern look. When coffee is brought to her, she finds out that her name is Pilar, just like her mother.
Even if she doesn’t speak to her or follow her, as soon as she steps outside, a smile lights up her face and a rainbow shines out at her. So that shows that she found what she was looking for at the end of the yellow brick road: a rainbow after a devastating hurricane, ie a sense of belonging to her family and to this world.
Dora is 16 years old and lives in a small town with her father Diego Galan and their dog Toto.
When her father asks her to get her birthday cake from the store, she overhears a conversation about Dora being more like her mother than her father.
On her 16th birthday, she spends the night with her father, who begins to talk about her childhood and how she changed his life.
On the other hand, Dora asks him where her mother is and why she left her. When Diego doesn’t answer her questions, she takes her dog and goes in search of her mother.
She goes to Weizeg’s house, where her mother used to work, and finds out about her grandmother, Maribel, who lives with Coco Weizeg’s.
There she also meets her cousin. Her cousin gives her the address of another place in the capital where her mother Pilar was last seen.
Maribel and Coco argue about how Dora appeared in their life out of the blue. During a heated argument, Coco accidentally shoots her husband. He was very ill and had just died.
At that moment, his lawyer walks in and denies the claim, saying no one will believe the second richest person in the world died this way.
Coco accuses Dora of killing her husband in a panic, but Dora runs away before they can call the police.
Detective Antonio begins his search for the killer at Coco’s house, where she says Dora broke in and killed her husband. Maribel says that Dora is her granddaughter, although she thought Dora died giving birth.
The will is brought in by Felix, who is Coco’s attorney. Since Coco’s husband Arturo had no children, the will states that Coco alone is entitled to the fortune.
With that, Coco is also saying that the expensive fertility treatments got her three months pregnant.
Dora continues to the capital, but she meets a drug addict named Muneco, a man named Mr. Bubalu, who tries to kill himself by jumping off a cliff, and a boy named Akin, whose brother often beats him for being different is.

Everyone goes with Dora to search for her mother
Coco tells Maribel that if she wants to continue living with her and take over the company, she has to help her find Dora and get rid of her.
Dora and her three friends follow their cousin’s advice and go to the motel in the capital to look for their mother.
The motel owner says Pilar worked there a year ago. Dora’s mother now works in Chinatown.
Coco has a miscarriage and thinks Maribel is to blame for everything. Maribel tells Coco that she gave up her daughter Pilar just to be with her, which breaks her heart and she decides to leave Coco.
Why is Coco accusing Dora of murder?
When Dora goes to the address the motel owner gave her, she ends up in Chinatown. But Maribel shows up instead of her mother. She tells Dora that Coco is after her and that her life is in danger.
When Dora asks Maribel why Coco is accusing her of murder, she finally says that the day she was born, 16 years ago, Coco found out that Pilar was pregnant with her husband’s child.
She became violent and mean to Pilar and tried to kill her child, but Pilar ran away that day, blaming her mother for ruining her life.
She also says that Arturo’s only child, Dora, is the only one who can inherit all his money, so Coco tries to frame her.

How does Dora get the house?
When police took Dora into custody, Detective Antonio Diego said she would be released immediately because security footage from the scene showed it was an accident.
Dora tells Diego that he is not her real father and he tells her he will take her home.
Dora runs away and Maribel helps her take a DNA test. The test shows that Dora is the daughter of the late Arturo.
Because of this, she receives two-thirds of his estate while Coco receives the other two-thirds. The New Testament states that they are the only ones who own the W business empire.
What is everyone doing at the party?
Maribel goes to Coco to get her things after helping Dora get what was rightfully hers.
Coco wants her to live with her again. She tells Maribel that she really loves her, and Maribel decides to come back.
Coco and Maribel are in business together now, so they plan a big party and invite Dora over.
Maribel finds out that Coco is trying to kill Dora when she goes to the party with Muneco and Mr. Bubalu. She then puts poison in Coco’s drink, which kills her.
Does Dora meet her mother?
After the party, Dora decides to return to her father’s house and calls Diego.
Then, on the way home, she stops at a snack bar. From the woman’s name tag she learns that her name is Pilar.
She looks longingly at her mother, but she doesn’t tell anyone who she is and leaves the diner.
