Hagamar: Everywhere. I have happy customers from here to Prague.
Behman: And Severac?
Hagamar: Yes, the monks. I sold them the tail of an a** ridden in the flight from Egypt.

This movie plot sets in the middle age.
What is the meaning of "flight"?

Just for once, you didn't need to asterisk the word "ass". Here, it means "donkey".

Flight is the act of running away.

By the way, ass in BrE only refers to the animal that ems mentioned. You'd need an extra asterisk for the BrE version of a**.

This version of flight is the noun form of the verb to flee.
