Ithaka depicts the incarceration of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange through the experience of his wife Stella Assange and his father John Shipton. Julian Assange faces a 175-year sentence if extradited to the United States. His family members are confronting the prospect of losing Julian forever to the abyss of the justice system. This David-and-Goliath struggle is personal, and, with Julian’s health declining in a British maximum-security prison, the clock is ticking. Through this behind-the-scenes view of the extradition hearing, the films grasp the personal cost paid by Julian and the true cost of truth.
