The British Every Picture Tells a Story is a tribute by James Scott to his father and grandfather. Alex Norton plays the eldest Scott, who after World War I service moves his family to Northern Ireland. Securing work as a painter, Scott invites his son to help him on the job. The boy shows genuine talent as an artist, and his father encourages him to develop his skill. When the elder Scott is accidentally killed, the Irish villagers finance the boy's art school education. The younger Scott becomes a renowned artist -- and eventually, the father of the director of Every Picture Tells a Story.
