Slovenski opis filma:

Cikel ob 130. obletnici rojstva Charlesa Chaplina. Mali potepuh, ikonični Chaplinov lik, poskuša preživeti v času ekonomske krize, v družbi nadzora, tehnološke modernizacije in avtomatiziranega dela. Nemogoče razmere v moderni tovarni Potepuha privedejo do živčnega zloma. Na begu z delovnega mesta se zatakne v kolesje stroja in v tovarni povzroči kaos. Po okrevanju v bolnici se brezposelni možakar po naključju znajde na čelu komunističnih demonstracij. Policija ga aretira in pošlje v zapor. Čeprav mu tam ni hudega, ga zaradi butastega nesporazuma slavijo kot heroja in ga kljub njegovemu nasprotovanju izpustijo na prostost. Tu spozna Ellen, osirotelo dekle, ki beži pred policijo zaradi ukradenega hlebca kruha. Na prostosti divjá boj za obstanek, zato Potepuh naredi vse, da bi ga znova strpali v keho.

Originalni opis filma:

Chaplins last 'silent' film, filled with sound effects, was made when everyone else was making talkies. Charlie turns against modern society, the machine age, (The use of sound in films ?) and progress. Firstly we see him frantically trying to keep up with a production line, tightening bolts. He is selected for an experiment with an automatic feeding machine, but various mishaps leads his boss to believe he has gone mad, and Charlie is sent to a mental hospital... When he gets out, he is mistaken for a communist while waving a red flag, sent to jail, foils a jailbreak, and is let out again. We follow Charlie through many more escapades before the film is out.
