Ferdinand is a Spanish bull, who arouses the disdain of his peers by preferring to smell the flowers and celebrate life rather than chasing about after red cloths waved by matadors in arenas. But when disaster strikes, he is taken to a fighting stadium like every bull in Spain. Now our noble hero needs to decide - is he is a fighting bull? Or is he a flower-smelling, sweet-natured bull? What will he choose?
