EQUALS takes place in a colourless, post-apocalyptic society - known as The Collective - where its inhabitants have been genetically modified between conception and birth to be emotion-free. Consequently, emotion, love, and sex have been outlawed.
Silas (Nicholas Hoult), an illustrator in The Collective, mysteriously starts experiencing feelings and realises he has become afflicted with Switched-On-Syndrome. As Silas is grappling with his new, undisclosed condition, he finds himself drawn to Nia (Kristen Stewart), a fiction writer, who he soon discovers is also emotionally alive, and also hiding the condition.
EQUALS stars Kristen Stuart, Nicholas Hoult, Bel Powley and Guy Pearce and is directed by Drake Doremus. EQUALS will be released digitally (EST) on Sept 19th and on VOD & DVD on October 3rd. Watch the trailer at the link.
