Sam leaps into the body of Chance Cole, a petty thief serving his time on a chain gang in 1956. Sam is chained to Jazz Boone, a black man doing 15 years for armed robbery who, according to Al, has been unjustly imprisoned after a jewelry store robbery. Sam and Jazz run-off with the local authorities in hot pursuit and Sam has to find a way to keep his partner alive. Recaptured by their jailers, they both soon find themselves in the punishment pit. Things go from bad to worse when Al reports the real jewelry store robber is still at it and is known to them through his frequent visits to the prison farm. He's not the only one involved in the crimes, however. Written by garykmcd
