Movie Info

A former soldier and Thai boxing champion leads viewers on an unforgettable journey as he travels into one of the poorest regions of Thailand in a bold attempt to build a brighter future for the impoverished children of the Golden Triangle. To the children whose villages have become infested by drug dealers and poisoned by poverty, Khru Bah is something of a folk hero. In addition to offering blessings to those whose futures seem especially bleak, Bah occasionally brings children back to the Golden Horse Temple in order to educate and train them in Buddhism. In this documentary, filmmaker Mark Verkerk focuses not only on Bah's remarkable contributions to the children of the Golden Triangle, but the transformation of the young students into novice monks as well. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Buddha's Lost Children


Simple documentary about a Thai boxer turned monk and the orphans under his protection and tutelage in the drug-ridden Golden Triangle. Over the course of a year, filming focusses on a few of the chidren growing and maturing under the "tough love" of their master and his nun helper. Thought provoking.
