A family in free fall ever since Vera, the eldest daughter, ran away from home a year ago. Everyone in the family bears some responsibility for her disappearance, but Mats, her father, is the guiltiest. Vera is now cohabiting with Morgan, a criminal far older than her who cynically exploits her vulnerability. Mats tries to get in touch with her but she refuses to have anything to do with her family. Her 18th birthday is approaching and Mats becomes increasingly desperate in his struggle to get his daughter back.

'Order of Love' is about survival and release; about the way life sometimes gives us another chance; and about love being greater than hatred.
