A much-loved family classic, this endearing story introduces to us George Bailey, who one Christmas Eve decides that his life is a failure - he faces bankruptcy, arrest and imprisonment. George, however, has spent a lifetime putting others first, and before he takes any rash action, angel Clarence is sent down to earth to show him how his good deeds have done so much for others - and how much worse the world would be had George never lived.
