Paris in the 1830s. Four friends share a drafty Parisian garret. Though leading a life of privation, they are buoyed by good spirits: the writer Rodolfo, the painter Marcello, the musician Schaunard and the philosopher Colline. It is Christmas Eve, and they decide to celebrate in their favorite pub, the CafÃ© Momus. Rodolfo stays behind to finish an article. There is a knock at the door; their neighbor MimÃ¬, whose candle has gone out, asks for fire. Rodolfo is fascinated by her. It is love at first sight! The new lovers catch up with Rodolfo's friends at the CafÃ© Momus, where Marcello's former mistress Musetta turns the evening into a spirited event. The light-hearted mood of Rodolfo's and MimÃ¬'s first days together does not last, however, for MimÃ¬ develops a fatal illness. Though they agree to stay together, MimÃ¬ leaves her lover. Only when she is desperately ill and dying does she return to the garret where she once was so happy - and to Rodolfo, the man she still loves with all her heart.
