Storyline

The Fight is an inspiring, emotional insider look at how these important battles are fought and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting them. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose his career, a young woman's right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. The Fight celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms. Written by Magnolia Pictures

So inspiring
22 July 2020 | by annagdlfSee all my reviews

I already knew the work at the ACLU was important but this really confirmed that for me. Not only seeing the behind the scenes of all these major court cases but getting to see who it affects and the lives that were changed was incredible!
