Having a womanizer and a gambler father, and a manic-depressive mother, Iza Calzado grows up in a very chaotic household. Her parents would always fight because her mother suspects her father for having an illicit affair. True enough, at a very young age, Iza discovers that her father is having an affair with his secretary and it becomes one of the reasons why Iza lives in a broken family. Despite that, Iza remains very close with her father more than her mother because she cannot understand her mother whose manic-depressive condition worsens at that time. Due to the stress in her family with no one taking care of her and giving her attention, Iza turns to food. She finds pleasure and comfort in eating which leads her to obesity. Because of her fatness, Iza would often hear people calling her ‘baboy, mataba’. Even her own mother calls her that way. Iza is even called, ‘maitim and pangit’ by her mother which adds to her insecurity. And also because of that, Iza thinks that no man could love her seriously.
