You are now in Bedford Falls.
It is a story of George bailey. He just didn’t get what he wanted from his life. This boy wanted to go explore the world, his dream was to build things, design new buildings, plan modern cities but destiny chose him to stay at home & serving the people of The Bedford Falls.

Henry F. Potter was the richest & meanest man in the county. He owned almost everything of Bedford Falls except BAILEY BROS Building & Loan Association, A foundation of George’s father Peter Bailey.
George has always longed to travel but never had the opportunity in order to prevent rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town. He took a stand against Henry F. Potter when his father passed away.

After so many years:

On one Christmas Eve, George's Uncle Billy loses the business's $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money and hides it from Billy. When the bank examiner discovers the shortage later that night, George realizes that he will be held responsible and sent to jail and the company will collapse, finally allowing Potter to take over the town.

Thinking of his wife, their young children, and others he loves will be better off with him dead, he contemplates suicide.
But the prayers of his loved ones result in a gentle angel named Clarence coming to earth to help George, with the promise of earning his wings.

Here is a little chit-chat between George n his guardian angel Clarence on that eve

George-“I’m worth more dead than alive.”

Clarence-“Yeah! so you still think that killing yourself would make everyone feel happier, eh?”

George-“Well I don’t know, I guess you’re right”. George whispered-“I suppose it would have been better if I’d never been born at all.”

Clarence asked-“What’d you say?”

George replied angrily –“I said, I wish I’d never been born.”

Clarence-“You’ve got your wish. You’ve never been born.”

He shows George what things would have been like if he had never been born.
In a nightmarish vision in which the Potter-controlled town is sunk in sex and sin, those George loves are either dead, ruined, or in miserable.

He realizes that he has touched many people’s life unknowingly in a positive way and that his life has truly been a wonderful one.

Finally George prayed-“I want to live again…”
