Equals is a 2015 American science fiction dystopian romantic drama film directed by Drake Doremus. produced by Michael Pruss, Chip Diggins, Ann Ruak, Michael Schaefer, Ridley Scott, and Jay Stern, and written by Nathan Parker from a story by Dormeus. It stars Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart as two people infected with a disease that regains their ability of compassion and emotion in a dystopian world where emotions don't exist; additional roles are provided by Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver.

In a futuristic dystopian/utopian society, human emotions and most illnesses have been eradicated and everyone lives in peace. But when a new disease named Switched On Syndrome surfaces, everything changes for illustrator Silas (Hoult). He becomes an outcast once infected, but is drawn to his writer co-worker Nia (Stewart), who is also infected but hiding her condition. Their secret romance continues to develop, but when a cure to the disease is found, their relationship and their ability to feel emotion is threatened. With the help of other infected citizens, they develop a potential escape plan, but after Nia receives a conception summons their plan begins to unravel. In the end they go through with their escape plan, as it is implied that the cure did not completely eradicate Silas' feelings for Nia.
