    A Rose Is Still a Rose

    When Abuela Elena leaves town for a few days, she entrusts an eager Maya with the care and feeding of her prized roses. Unfortunately, while Maya's heart is in the right place, she is too eager to get Abuela's roses growing quickly. Miguel, meanwhile, wants to become a wrestler and begins taking lessons from Gus "El Guamazo" Lopez, former luchador. But instead of getting an exciting luchador costume and learning show-wrestling moves, Gus teaches Miguel the actual principles of wrestling (which often, to Miguel's horror, resemble baking in Gus' bakery). As Maya slowly destroys Abuela's roses, Miguel gets frustrated with the slow pace of his training and quits. But when Maya's overzealousness in the garden leads to a flood of over-watering, Miguel hops into action, using the moves taught to him by Gus Lopez to overcome the flood. In the end, both Maya and Miguel learn the value of patience and consistency – in gardening, wrestling and life.
