Alfie races his mom and sister to the door after a day of shopping. He runs inside first, and then slams the door shut, locking Mom and Annie Rose out of the house! Mom suggests how to open the door, but Alfie can’t reach the doorknob. Soon, the whole neighborhood is trying to get inside. Little do they know, Alfie is working to open the door by himself. He overcomes his fear of being inside alone and finds a solution. He opens the door for all of his neighbors and everyone comes inside to celebrate!
