Note that the following solution only applies to versions of MongoDb prior to v3.2.

You can't do what you want in just one query. First you have to retrieve the list of friend user ids, then pass those ids to the second query to retrieve the documents and sort them by age.

var user = db.user.findOne({"id" : "001"}, {"friends": 1})

db.user.find( {"id" : {$in : user.friends }}).sort("age" : 1);
