MOVIE:

It’s a Wonderful Life   (1946)
with James Stewart, Donna Reed and Lionel Barrymore
An angel helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he had never existed. In the movie, it is easy to notice that peace, joy and kindness are often forgotten in the busyness of a human life.
