George Bailey never got a chance to fulfill his life's ambitions of exploring the world. As he watches his friends and family become success stories, he gives up his dreams for the good of his town. When a financial error drives him to contemplate ending his life, an angel is sent from Heaven to show him what life would have been like if he had never existed.
The film was suggested by community members Rose Sage-Morrish and Jennifer Bowling:
"The film to me is about support, living life and accepting challenges and struggles head-on, as they will make you a stronger person." - Jennifer
