It was to be the opening salvo of a relentless attack on civil liberties and a tsunami of lawsuits waged against the Trump administration.
What must it be like to be an ACLU lawyer in this day and age?
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 with loosing his career, a young womans 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 US citizens freedoms.
