"Children of God" explores the life of the children who live beside the Baghmati River in Nepal on the sacred grounds of a Hindu temple in Katmandu. Undeterred by the daily funeral ceremonies; they rob the corpses for food and dive into the river to grab coins used as funeral offerings. The film exposes the social conditions of the suppressed Nepalese people through the plight of their children, where reverence for the old and dead far outweighs the care for the young and living.

Very good, but sad documentary. My heart breaks for these children. No one deserves to live like that. I hope their lives somehow turn around.

the scrabbled scramble of children for life among the dying, dead and lure of alcohol and drugs
