You know, from the classic children's book?

All the other young bulls want to do one thing (be picked for the bullfight) and Ferdinand doesn't.  Ferdinand is happier by himself doing his own thing that he likes than he is with the other young bulls trying to fit in and do the things they want to do.  (Ferdinand is a very lucky bull, because his mother understands, and lets him do what he likes to do instead of trying to force him to be like the other bulls.)

Ferdinand is a sensory-seeker: all he wants to do is smell the flowers.

When Ferdinand is in pain, he has a meltdown (snorts and paws the earth and acts crazy).  (This is why they think he'd be a good candidate for the bullfighting ring.)

But when they get him there, they can't get him to fight because he doesn't want to.  (Ferdinand still doesn't participate in social expectations, preferring to do what he wants to do--i.e. smell the flowers.)

In the end, Ferdinand is allowed to go back home and just be himself, experiencing the world the way he wants and needs to.
