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. Poignant and timely, THE FIGHT is the inspiring, emotional story of four pivotal cases and the ACLU lawyers on the front lines 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.  Magnolia Pictures will release the film in theaters and on-demand on July 31.
