Based on the play of the same name by Japanese writer and director Kenichi Suemitsu, EQUAL is set in 17th century Europe, where society is overrun by witch hunts and the Black Death. It follows a pair of best friends, Theo and Nicola, the latter of whom remains locked in their shared cabin due to a terminal illness.

Theo, who is a doctor, attempts to cure his friend’s sickness using information he finds in a mysterious book of alchemy. However, the pair begin exhibiting bizarre behaviour as Nicola’s death draws closer.
