Description

Meet the Donut King: Ted Ngoy, a vivacious 77-year-old Cambodian refugee who found the American dream in the center of a doughnut. Alice Gu's remarkable debut is a peppy character study of Ngoy, wrapped in a deeper look at the refugee population's proliferation of doughnut shops in Southern California. This film serves at once as a celebration of the doughnut and a testament to the tenacity of immigrants to remake their lives in America. WISCONSIN ONLY
