An imaginative, often slapstick satire on the alienating and disruptive effects of mass production and automation. Charlie Chaplin, in his last portrayal of his famous character the Tramp, goes from a factory worker to jailbird to night watchman to singing waiter, beset on all fronts by bad luck, misunderstandings, and unfortunate circumstances beyond his control. Befriended only by a lovely but wild street waif, he labors against all odds to make a life for himself. Primarily a silent film with music, sound effects, and some spoken and sung dialogue

"La suerte está a punto de jugarle extrañas partidas a Charlot, pues al evitar el suicidio de un millonario ebrio, éste se comportará con él de una forma completamente inconsistente, pues le ofrecerá amistad y fortuna en estado de ebriedad, y lo desconocerá y rechazará al estar sobrio. Cuando Charlot trate de valerse de esa extraña nueva amistad para ofrecerle ayuda a una chica humilde, de la cual se enamora repentinamente, no conseguirá sino terminar en la cárcel, acusado de robo por aquel alcohólico esquizoide. De alguna manera Charlot logará sobrevivir, pero no sin provocarnos múltiples carcajadas en cada intento."--Envase
