Six-Word Story Challenge – “MacGuffin”

Today’s challenge is “MacGuffin”

“Lost Relic. World domination if found.”

For those that haven’t encountered the word before, here is a good definition:
“The MacGuffin technique is common in films, especially thrillers. Usually, the MacGuffin is revealed in the first act, and thereafter declines in importance. It can reappear at the climax of the story but may actually be forgotten by the end of the story. Multiple MacGuffins are sometimes derisively identified as plot coupons.”

I look forward to your responses. 
Cheers,
