Storyline

It's almost Christmas. A figure of The Madonna disappears from a church. MacGyver and Pete, who are on their way to to deliver gifts to a local youth center, see an old homeless lady being harassed by two punks and chase them away. They take the lady to the youth center, where she gets shelter. Sadly, the center is under a threat of being shut down because of lack of money. Pete can't help because the Phoenix Foundation budget is already locked for the next six months. The priest from the church speaks on TV, petitioning for information on the Madonna. MacGyver decides to help. But in the unfolding events, the old lady has a role to play as well. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland
