Frank Capra brilliantly and magically captures both the holiday spirit and the American spirit in this beloved film about a good man in depression-era small town America. Facing financial ruin, James Stewart is seriously contemplating suicide when his guardian angel arrives and shows him what his town would have been like if he had never been born. He realizes how many lives he has touched through his existence, and awakens to the fact that, despite all of his troubles, he truly has a wonderful life.
