When a migrant mother is separated from her child, when a transgender soldier is at risk to lose his career, when reproductive rights and basic voting rights are under attack — five unsung heroes take legal action to protect our freedoms. „The Fight” is an inspiring, emotional look at four pivotal cases and the lawyers on the front line of relentless attacks on civil liberties. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles.
