             The plot of the story is about a student named Xandra, who loves math died because of a tragic accident 10 years ago while she is studying her Math notebook. In the present, a student who is having a struggle in studying math named Xena, accidentally found a notebook that really helped her to learn her lessons in Math. And it all started there. She didnt knew that the notebook she found is a property of Xandra.. And Xandra will never stop until someone can help her to solve the equation.

              It was a really big test for us to deliver this type of story because its our first time to make a big project like this and we really need to make the story thrilling but at the same time, delivering mathematics idea using a different twist.

           We already started to make our schedules of our shooting days and the expenses that we need to pay for the props for the film. We also started to rehearse some parts of the movie so that the lead roles can make their act more realistic. 

           We decided to take some scenes during afternoon after our Saturday class and for some vacant during our vacant time. All of the members participated and did their job well.

    We are trying to take a scene in the girls comfort room. This scene should be taken in the school's girls CR but because the Comfort room was locked that time, so we need to find another setting and luckily, we found a good one. 

  

    We used the Lingayen Capitol's girls Restroom as the setting of the scene.
