99 mins
7.4 / 10 (34)


The rise and fall of a Cambodian refugee who escaped genocide and overcame poverty to build a life for himself—and hundreds of other immigrant families—by baking America’s favorite pastry and building an unlikely empire of donut shops.

MUBI's take

Executive produced by Ridley Scott, Alice Gu’s vibrant documentary covers a sugary true story that has a bittersweet aftertaste. In the face of war trauma, the astonishing rise of a Cambodian refugee who became a self-made millionaire reflects both the promise and the limits of the American Dream.
