It’s A Wonderful Physician’s Life

Watch the story of Dr. George Bailey, a physician who loses his will to live when he realizes that his family is spending much more than he can actually make. George reaches an epiphany that the only his wife and kids can continue to lead their excessive lifestyle is to kill himself for the life insurance. Answering the age old question that every doctor asks, “What would this world be like if I had never graduated medical school?” Basically it is a sweet-natured classic drama about a near-suicidal man learning the value of his existence can never match the spending of a family.

Memorable Lines:
