Superior Donuts takes place in the historic Uptown neighborhood of Chicago, where Arthur Przybszewski runs a donut shop that has been in his family for sixty years. Franco Wicks, a young African-American man, and Arthur’s only employee, wants to modernize the shop while Arthur is more content to spend the day reminiscing about his Polish immigrant father.
