Overview


Synopsis

Never Too Late revolves around Harry, a married man in his fifties, who suddenly learns he's becoming a father, again. He and his wife, Edith, were looking forward to being grandparents, not new parents. They have a grown daughter and son-in-law who are expecting their first child. Up to this point, Harry and Edith had lived a bucolic life, with Harry firmly in charge of things both at his business and at home. Suddenly confronting a new and unexpected impending birth, however, Harry's previously meek little wife begins to lay down the law.
