In Know Your Place, a young Eritrean-American boy's life-changing trip takes place against the colorful cityscape of Seattle. Delivering a heavy bag across town for a family member in need back in Eritrea seems like a simple task for fifteen-year-old Robel Haile. With his faithful companion Fahmi Tadesse by his side, a straightforward activity turns into a meaningful journey. Robel struggles with the weight of her family's expectations, her search for her own identity, and the uncomfortable sensation of being uprooted as they travel through Seattle's fast evolving neighborhoods. He challenges his perception of the place he has always called home when he encounters the harsh truth of his community's economic turmoil amid the city's gentrification. The interplay between societal change and personal evolution is vividly captured in this drama.
