Imagine a world where you weren't allowed to feel anything. No happiness. No sadness. No anger. No love.

That's exactly what life is like in the new futuristic film "Equals." It stars actor Nicholas Hoult as a young man named Silas, who suffers from a disease known as Switched on syndrome, or SOS. 

"Equals" was directed by our next guest Drake Doremus. He dropped by KPCC to tell Alex Cohen about his latest film, and why love seems to be the common thread that connects his work.
