The art of storytelling is heavenly when you discover It's A Wonderful Life. The holiday classic comes to life anew, with five actors including an imaginative sound-effects artist, as a radio play! George Bailey dreams of traveling the world. His plans are postponed when the family business faces financial problems. Down on his luck, Bailey is at the end of his rope. He questions his purpose in life and considers ending it all. Just then, an angel arrives to show Bailey how the lives of those he loves would be affected if he were not around. Your entire family will love this story from the heart that rings true today!
