AZON: A tale of INSPIRATION

Azon chronicles the life and times of Corazon B. Frasco.  From her humble beginnings as a kneader for Titay's Liloan Rosquillos, to becoming a widow with two kids by her late 20s while still managing to raise the company she inherited to become a household name for bread, biscuits and pastries.  

'Azon' will start as a biography book project. The book will then become source material for the screenplay.  

It'll be structured as a cradle-to-grave life story, beginning with her as a young girl coming from a large but poor family.  It'll then follow her marriage in her 20s which was cut short due to the sudden death of her husband at age 28.  The third part will be during her last years and eventually her death on December 25th 1999.
