George Bailey is not having a good day. His life in the sleepy little town of Bedford Falls has been thrown off track, perhaps never to recover. His business has failed, he's wanted by the police, and he's had a fight with his beloved wife Mary. On this disastrous day, his responsibilities and frustrations overwhelm him, leading him to a bridge and serious contemplation of suicide. It's up to an angel named Clarence to convince George that his life has been one of worth and that it's still worth living. After taking a long look at George's life, the angel offers a portrait of what life in Bedford Falls would be like if George had never been born.

Ein englischer Diplomat wird in ein abgeschiedenes Himalayatal entführt, wo man ihm die Führung einer dort in kultivierter Geistigkeit und scheinbar vollkommener Harmonie lebenden Gemeinschaft anbietet. Unter dem Einfluß einer Frau verweigert er sich dieser Aufgabe, bereut es später und verunglückt - gewollt oder ungewollt - tödlich. Die phantastische Verfilmung eines utopischen Romans von James Hilton über den alten Menschheitstraum vom absoluten äußeren und inneren Frieden. Capras Film, eine vor allem durch ihre Atmosphäre faszinierende, romantische und pessimistische Allegorie, behandelt die Flucht aus der realen Welt, nicht die Auseinandersetzung mit ihr.
