We are in the middle of a war.
Not a specific war and not even a specific “we” — for most of its history, humanity has been fighting with or for something. It is a byproduct of civilization’s very existence. We fight against each other, on behalf of each other, and then we gather ourselves in victory or defeat, summoning strength for the next one.
Magnolia Pictures’ The Fight centers on four major civil rights cases, but also on this constant battle and the American Civil Liberties Union’s decision to take up its mantle — no matter who it has to defend.
