Hello everyboby. Many years ago, middle 80s-early 90s, I watched a TV movie or mini-series about a young girl (20something, I think) that she feels unhappy and unfortunate with her existence and thinks about how would be life without her. Then one day it's offered this chance to know how would be the life if she never had been existed, landing on an alternate reality where she wasn't born and all her relatives and friends behave of different way as she met before. I remember specially a friend of her, an old man that she usually met in a park bench: the old man was very nice before, but in the alternate reality he was very grumpy. Anyone find it familiar? Thanks.
PS: Yeah, I know that it sounds like a female-version of James Stewart's It's a Wonderful Life. I don't know if it was a remake made at those time.

There is a female remake of It's a Wonderful Life, and it's readily found on the Connections page:

I clicked on your link and I watched the movie, but I'm sure that it isn't. The TV movie that I remember happened on "actual time" when it was filmed. This 1977's movie happens on 1944.

ABC Afternoon Special:  Amy & the Angels (1982), with Helen Slater.  Apparently it had quite a cast, James Earl Jones, David Huddleston,  Hermione Gingold, and Meg Ryan.

Amy, a depressed seventeen year old high school girl, is visited by her guardian angel Oliver after wishing she had never been born. Oliver shows Amy how important she is to the people in her life.

YES! It's that I've been looking for. Impressive, I can't believe it because I didn't know that the main starring was Helen Slater, one of my favourite actress of all my life. I though that I loved Slater since I saw her at teenage in Supergirl and The Legend of Billie Jean. Now I learn that she liked me even before. A thousand thanks, Bill Davis.
