An advanced society - the Collective - has emerged out of a Great War. Along with the technological advances are societal advances where emotions and feelings are switched off at birth to allow humans, devoid of any individuality, to focus on the greater good of society, especially in exploring the universe.

Some humans can be afflicted with Switched-on-Syndrome (SOS) - thought not to be contagious - where those emotions and feelings begin to emerge, the ultimate manifestation of the disease being coupling. There are four distinct documented stages of SOS, and if one is able to survive stage 3 when thoughts of suicide emerge, one is ultimately subjected to a painless death in the worst cases of stage 4 as there is no known cure.

Humans are to report signs in other of SOS and more importantly to recognize signs of it in oneself, in both cases the affected subjects sent to Health and Safety (H and S) for ultimate diagnosis and treatment.

Silas, who has one of the more coveted jobs in the Collective as an illustrator at the educational research firm Atmos, begins to recognize the symptoms in himself, and at H and S, is diagnosed at stage 1 of SOS. In treatment at H and S, Silas meets Jonas, who is at stage 2 of the disease. Through Jonas, Silas meets a group of SOS sufferers who provide support to each other, most who neither deny or suppress to each other their want to experience these human feelings and emotions.

Concurrently, Silas believes he sees in one of his coworkers, Nia, a writer, signs of SOS. He ultimately discovers that she indeed does suffer from SOS, and is a "hider", not disclosing these symptoms to anyone, let alone to H and S. Silas and Nia end up falling in love with each other, that love which feels right and not wrong as they were taught.

Through the support group, Silas and Nia contemplate escaping to the Peninsula - the only known land mass that survived the war outside of the Collective control - their future there, if there is a future, uncertain. They have to balance these issues against the fact that a cure has been developed which would once again suppress their feelings for each other.

User reviews

Robert Baker

The haunting vocals in some tracks evoke the inner turmoil and forbidden emotions experienced by the characters.

Laura Roberts

The soundtrack of Equals is a truly mesmerizing and emotionally captivating experience. It perfectly captures the cold, sterile atmosphere of the advanced society portrayed in the film, while also conveying the gradual emergence of emotions and feelings in the characters.

Nancy Thompson

Overall, the music in Equals is a vital component that enhances the emotional depth and thematic complexity of the narrative.

Ashley Hernandez

The contrast between serene instrumentals and tense rhythms mirrors the characters' struggle between societal norms and their emerging feelings.

Steven Robinson

The soundtrack of Equals fails to effectively capture the emotional depth and complexity of the characters' journey from a repressed society to discovering love and individuality. The music lacks the necessary nuances and layers to enhance the storytelling, resulting in a disconnect between the audience and the characters' internal struggles.

Daniel Turner

The electronic elements in the music reflect the advanced technological society depicted in the movie.

Donald Nelson

The use of minimalistic melodies enhances the sense of emotional repression and conformity portrayed in the storyline.

Steven Roberts

Moreover, the soundtrack of Equals feels repetitive and uninspired, with a lack of memorable melodies or themes that could have elevated key moments in the film. The music fails to evoke a sense of tension, romance, or emotional resonance, leaving the audience feeling detached from the characters' experiences and unable to fully invest in their journey of self-discovery.

Kimberly Allen

The use of ambient sounds creates an eerie and immersive listening experience that complements the visual aesthetics of the film.

Timothy Green

The haunting melodies and ethereal tones evoke a sense of both hope and despair, mirroring the complex emotions experienced by Silas, Nia, and the other SOS sufferers. The soundtrack adds an extra layer of depth and intensity to the story, enhancing the overall viewing experience and leaving a lasting impact on the listener.

Susan Garcia

Each track in the soundtrack beautifully complements the different stages of the Switched-on-Syndrome, from the initial sense of emptiness and numbness to the eventual overwhelming rush of emotions. The music effortlessly conveys the internal struggles and conflicts faced by the characters, making the audience feel deeply connected to their journey.
