Children of God explores the life of the children who live in Pashupatinath, beside the Baghmati River in Nepal - on the sacred grounds of a Hindu temple in Kathmandu an area forgotten and ignored by the world, but considered the holiest and most sacred to the Nepalese people.

The children are undeterred by the daily cries and wailing from the daily funeral ceremonies; instead they rob the corpses for food and dive into the river to grab coins used as funeral offerings by the mourners. Some risk their lives by begging while others fall prey to drugs and disease.

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. Experiencing their innocence and their hardship through songs, stories and heartbreaking living conditions, exposes the contradiction of the material world that rests upon perhaps the most spiritual culture on earth.
