It Pays to Practice!

This is a decent episode involving a prisoner who is a skilled pianist. He isn't fitting in very well, partly because he was falsely convicted. Piano is his life and one day an older prisoner shows him a dilapidated old piano that had been in the prison for decades. When he starts to play it, he goes back to the Twenties. There is a connection here with the Al Capone era and an event that occurred back then. He is also able to pay back a man who gave him a break.
