John Shipton is a retired builder who lives reclusively and likes to recite ancient Greek myths. He used to be an anti-war activist, but today he has to fight for his son – the world’s most famous political prisoner: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. John cautiously steps into the media spotlight, handing out flowers at Assange protests and embarking on an odyssey through Europe to tirelessly build a network of supporters. The clock is ticking – because Julian’s health is continuing to deteriorate in a maximum-security British prison. And the US Attorney’s Office tries to extradite Julian: he faces 175 years in prison. Freedom of the press is at stake – and John risks losing his son forever. A surprising documentary produced by Julian Assange's brother that defies the mainstream narratives surrounding Assange.
