But the family is upset when the patriarch, Alonzo Smith, says he's accepted a job transfer to New York City, meaning that they have to relocate there and miss this grand event. Daughter Esther is especially distraught because she is in love with the boy next door and doesn't want their budding romance to end so suddenly.
