“Winner of the Special Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, The Donut King is a riveting true story of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut.
After settling in Southern California, legendary entrepreneur Ted Ngoy sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.” -SXSW
