Viola, an overweight young beautiful woman, works in her husband's boutique as sales assistant. Her life is pivoted on a monotonous routine between her job and her household life. No one around her seems to ever notice her presence. One day when she gets back from the supermarket, she cannot enter her home because her husband has changed the lock. He is fed up with her. With her neighbour's help, she decides to leave everything behind and fill her life with something that she has always liked: candies, and chocolate especially. Chocolate will be the key to her new future: her newly-found freedom and self-reliance in her own beauty will be an ideal retribution with respect to those who had always made fun of her.
