||Mona is bullied in high school because she’s overweight. Only Tony stands up for her, but she rejects his friendship, believing he just feels sorry for her. As an adult, Mona learns she has a glandular condition and may be fat forever. Gene, who works in her father’s candy factory, courts Mona, but she learns her father promised him a partnership if he marries her. Mona locks herself in her room, depressed. Tony insists he loves her and she agrees to marry him, then discovers she’s also lost a lot of weight during her depression-induced isolation.
