Known as a Holiday classic, It’s a Wonderful Life follows George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty. After falling into despair, George’s guardian angel appears to save him from despair and to remind George of the wonderful life he has been given by showing him a world where he was never born.
