Burnt out screenwriter Herb Tucker’s life is turned upside down when the daughter he abandoned 16 years earlier, suddenly appears at his doorstep. A quirky Brooklyn girl, Libby demands Herb “pay up” for the lost years by launching her career in the movies. Yet, it’s clear from the start that Libby’s real dream is to have a relationship with the father she never knew.  The commitment-shy Herb is reluctant at first, but inspired by Libby’s spirit and determination, decides to give fatherhood another shot. With Simon’s signature blend of warmth and humor, I Ought to Be in Pictures is a poignant comedy reminding us that when it comes to family, it’s never too late to start again.
