"One fine evening, Miz Mozetta puts on her firecracker-red dress and favorite blue shoes and heads outside to enjoy the moonlight. She wants to dance, but her old friends have too many aches and pains to join her. The neighborhood kids she tries to enlist doubt that Miz Mozetta would be able to keep up with them. So she retreats to her parlor, where she must settle for dreaming about the old days at the Blue Pearl Ballroom. Just when her feet are itching to get out there and do the jitterbug--friends or no friends--a knock comes on the door, and Miz Mozetta gets some welcome, and surprising, company."
