"The story behind the film is large and contains multitudes."
—Los Angeles Times

"A global story about immigration, ambition, hope, community - and it's got a really terrific soundtrack." —FilmWeek

"A timely cinematic treat." —Cinemalogue

Ted's story is one of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It's the rags and 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 fall.
