Ted's story is one 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.

Ted 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. Alice Gu, Director and writer of THE DONUT KING says "the donuts are the lure, or the Trojan Horse. A history lesson in American morality at the highest political level and its relationship with refugees are the unexpected army inside." NR, 94 min.

"A moving and lively portrait of multiple family businesses and the man that envisioned and executed a delectable kingdom of confections." - The Film Stage
