Elena, Isabel, and Francisco are going around Avalor Palace to perform a song for Luisa for Dia de las Madres. After accidentally performing it for Armando and Senora Torres by mistake, they decide to make sure it's Luisa first. When they finally find her, they perform the song for her. Luisa loves the song. Francisco says that he and their granddaughters each got her a gift much to Isabel's horror: She doesn't have a gift because she thought the song was the gift. Isabel goes off with Flo to make one. Franciso gives his wife a shiny emerald brooch. Elena uses her Scepter's Truthvision ability to show Luisa her favorite Mother's Day memory. During that Mother's Day, Isabel was just a baby, and the family was in La Vida Dulce. Little Elena shows up with her cousin, Esteban, which confuses Elena. Luisa says that this was the year Esteban lost his parents. Seeing young Elena and Esteban play peek-a-boo with baby Isabel, Francisco remarks that he forgot Isa was ever that little, and Luisa wonders what's taking her granddaughter so long.
Isabel looks through her workshop with Flo to figure out what gift to make for Luisa, and she decides to invent something to help her grandmother with her gardening.
Meanwhile, Elena and her grandparents are still enjoying Elena's gift. During another part of that Mother's Day, after Raul accidentally adds salt instead of sugar to the chocolate, young Esteban tricks his cousin into eating it, and they have a playful chocolate fight until they accidentally hit their grandmother. It seems like Luisa is angry with her grandchildren, but she joins them by splattering them with chocolate. Even Baby Isabel joins in the fun with her first invention: the triple chocolate catapult, which she uses to splatter her big sister, cousin, and grandmother at once. Elena remembers Esteban saying that he felt like he had no place in the family when his betrayal was revealed, which she doesn't understand as she believes the memories show that he was part of the family. However, they begin to understand when they see the part where the family gave the children boxes of chocolates to give to their mothers, and Esteban felt left out because he no longer had a mother to celebrate with, to his grandmother's concern. Elena had no idea how her cousin felt.
Meanwhile, Isabel brings a plant into her workshop to test out her latest invention, the Snip-Snap, which will cut the prettiest flowers and wrap them into paper to make a bouquet, but the machine has kinks, and it tears the plant apart.
Meanwhile, Elena and her grandparents see the part where Luisa showed Esteban the family's grove of cacao trees, which she planted for special occasions, and she asked her grandson to help plant one for a new special occasion: Esteban coming to live with the family in the palace. As the family leaves the garden, Isabel and Flo show up with the Snip-Snap, which has been improved, but the machine cuts down the entire garden. On the balcony, Elena and her grandparents are enjoying the chocolates for Luisa. When Elena's scepter shows the part where the family portrait was painted, they find that Esteban wasn't there much to their confusion because they remember him being in the portrait with them. But when they see the actual portrait, they find that he's not in the portrait at all, which makes Luisa feel like she didn't fulfill her goal as a mother to him. Elena feels awful that she showed this Mother's Day, and Francisco says it's time to look into the future, so the family goes off to La Vida Dulce to make chocolates.
However, when Elena and her grandparents get to the shop, she finds a few more cacao trees, and she tells her grandmother that she always believed that's where they got their cacao beans. Luisa says that they've always gotten their cacao beans from the family grove, and she doesn't remember ever planting trees outside La Vida Dulce. Thanks to the Scepter of Light, they discover that Esteban planted those trees to honor his mother and grandmother. Just as the family is about to start making chocolate, the kids seen in the memories arrive, all grown up, and they give Luisa thanks for her chocolate and being a mother to them. Isabel comes and tells her grandmother what happened and apologizes. Luisa forgives her granddaughter and suggests they plant a new garden.
