Love Is The Law

The film picks up the message of love from the Christian tradition and perverts it through a modern, TV-News setting. The religious but at the same time overtly secular love poem wich the News anchor reads out preaches and challenges the concept of Christian love. Humour is essential, but at the same time the gloomy corruption of both love and modern mediators of truth is ever present.
