Chaplin’s feature-length directing debut.

The Tramp finds an abandoned baby in a garbage can in the slums. At first, he tries to give him away to other people, but nothing comes of his attempts, and he decides to keep the child. Five years later, the Kid and the Tramp become a real family. They try to survive together in the cruel world and even make a little bit of money. One day, the Kid gets sick, and the social services want to separate him from the Tramp upon finding out that he’s an orphan. However, the Tramp doesn’t give up, and in the end, they both find happiness and a real roof over their heads.
