Chaplin plays an immigrant fleeing Europe on a ship to America. Poor and hungry he rejoices over a coin that he finds, without noticing that it is his own last penny, that fell out through a hole in his pocket. The underdog tries to survive in a hostile world while staying humane.

MUBI's take

Poignant and entertaining, The Immigrant has everything we love about Charlie Chaplin on display: his inimitable physical comedy, filmmaking skill, and sharp social commentary. One of the most beloved short films from one of cinema’s greatest artists.
