It is just a few days before Christmas. Officer Pat O'Roarke is working hard late in the evenings making and fixing toys for Christmas gifts for poor children. Pat suffers a severe heart attack. He is gravely ill and barely clinging to life. Pat seems to find strength to live from the sound of the church bells at Knotty Pine Church.
Elderly Herman Schmidt takes care of the church bells. The bells break down while Pat is struggling to survive. Herman is unable to climb the tower to fix the bells because he suffers from severe arthritis.
Bill and the rangers try to fill in for Herman but can't seem to locate the problem. How will they fix the church bells? Will Officer Pat live to see Christmas?
