Plot Synopsis

Human rights advocate Somy Ali and her nonprofit No More Tears, who have rescued thousands of men, women, and children from domestic violence and sex trafficking. FIGHT OR FLIGHT is a one-hour docuseries that follows Somy's work as she illustrates the horrors and frequency of abuse, profiling the very real dangers and emotional impact of transforming a victim into a survivor. With every episode, the clock is ticking as Somy works with real victims: it's a race against time to extricate them from the situations from which they seek to escape; secure legal, medical and educational counsel; and, find them a safe place to stay while working alongside them to rebuild their lives to give them the independence they've been denied for so long. Shot as a follow-style docuseries, viewers will go along with Somy as she navigates the best way to help these victims, experiences the emotional highs and lows of advocacy, and discusses her own journey as she reckons with her traumatic past and the abuse she herself suffered as a young woman. In the premiere episode, Somy works alongside law enforcement to bring a woman and her son to safety from an alleged volatile abuser, meets with a sex trafficking victim who wants to rebuild her life entirely, and assists a woman in a fight for financial freedom. In each case, Somy devotes herself fully and works tirelessly to keep these survivors safe and from returning to the circumstances from which they sought to escape, but sometimes has to cope with devastating consequences. The first three episodes of FIGHT OR FLIGHT dropped on Thursday, May 26, 2022 on discovery+.
