       "La bohème is the story of four young dreamers, as well as the women they love. Sustained by their art, music and joie de vivre, the friends refuse to acknowledge the precariousness of their existence and the harsh realities of city living that constantly

threaten to disrupt their equilibrium. But life will not be so easily thwarted, and as brutal city life threatens to overwhelm the group, their lives will be changed forever..."
