Key Lime Pie

Writer & Director
Allen Delgado

When wrongfully accused of stealing a customer’s watch, a Hispanic busser must find that watch before a slice of key lime pie is served.


Official Selection

SERGIO is a hardworking, Hispanic busser at a diner, who is wrongfully accused of stealing a watch simply because of his appearance, broken/limited English, and line of work. An arrogant BRANDON gives Sergio until he receives his slice of key lime pie to find that watch or there will be trouble. Enlisting the help of his fellow co-busser MAURICIO, Sergio goes on a wild goose chase throughout the diner in search of the watch, interacting with a moody waitress JESS, two boxing-training TEENAGERS, an intimidating SON CHEF, a loving MOM CHEF, and a slow OLD LADY. Will Sergio find that watch, or will he find the respect he deserves?


Growing up in an Ecuadorian household and having worked as a busser, I wish to bring to light the stereotypes bestowed upon the Hispanic/Latinx community, particularly those working in low-paying occupations such as Sergio. From a comedic lens, Key Lime Pie tackles several issues within the Hispanic/Latinx community, including discrimination, unfair treatment, and language barriers.
