George Bailey (James Stewart), overwhelmed by family obligations and a sense of responsibility towards his community of Bedford Falls, feels tied down to a company he never had an interest in working for, and a life he never wanted to live. As he ages, he sees his youth, dreams and opportunities pass him by. When a financial discrepancy puts him in a difficult position, he decides the world would be better off without him. But his guardian angel appears, and shows him what life would have been like if he had never been born.
