I don't believe the synopsis (11/25/14) is correct, but I'm not good at providing one either. It was an okay episode and was probably a good reflection of the times and how they treated children, specifically chimney sweeps. However, it wasn't the best one in my opinion although it was okay.

In 1819, a woman whose child has died begins having "spells" in which her mind leaves her body. She takes pity on a young boy who has been forced into service as a chimney sweep, only to have tragedy strike again. There's some neat description of the "ghost" in the story, and the mistreatment of children in the early 19th century is an interesting topic, but it never really comes together into a good show. Definitely skippable.
