After Julian Assange was arrested at London's Ecuadorian embassy in 2019, his Victoria-based father stepped into the legal, political and media fray. Joined by Julian's fiancée, Stella Moris, 76-year-old Shipton lays out the situation to journalists, often sounding eerily like his detained son. In early 2021, the UK verdict on whether to extradite Julian to America collided with a pandemic and the US presidential election. As the crusade heats up, Shipton battles on, challenging misconceptions with quiet patience and remarkable composure.
