Starring Kristen Stuart, Nicholas Hoult, Bel Powley and Guy Pearce, 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.”
Emotion, love, and sex have been outlawed.
Silas (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 (Stewart), a fiction writer, who he soon discovers is also emotionally alive, and also hiding the condition.
Equals will be released digitally (EST) on Sept 19th and on VOD & DVD on October 3rd.
