For this occasion, the iconic tramp character this time is an immigrant who arrives in the United States on a ship from Europe, thus addressing the drama that so many have had to live throughout history in search of a better life. . The immigrant will be falsely accused of theft during the crossing. But, in the face of this adversity, the man will end up working with the alleged victim, Edna, because in the face of the poverty she saw that she and her sick mother suffered, in reality what she tried was to help her by leaving money in her pocket, and only tried to recover for him a small part to his own need. Luckily, Edna will give the pertinent explanations and clear Charlot's name.

Later, the bankrupt immigrant will one day find a coin thrown in the street. Faced with such luck, Charlot will go to a restaurant to pamper himself. There he will meet Edna, who will tell him that his mother has sadly passed away. Filmed by history, the tramp will invite you to eat thanks to his currency.
