La Bohème tells the story of a group of young artists, musicians and writers struggling to survive in Paris in the middle of the last century. There are two parallel love affairs going on: Marcello the painter and his temperamental girlfriend Musetta are constantly (and simultaneously) at love and war while the poet Rudolpho falls for a shy and gentle girl named Mimi who lives next door. Despite the cold, the poverty and the lack of commercial success, the students manage to enjoy life to the full. However, a threatening cloud looms on their carefree horizon when Mimi falls prey to a deadly illness.
