Four friends who have the same problems, worries, habits, feelings and pleasures; poet Rodolfo, painter Marcello, philosopher Colline and musician Schaunard, are sitting on a loft in an old house in Monmartre. When the curtain opens, a poorly furnished roof with windows covered with ice is visible. The painter Marcello is trembling and trying to finish the painting 'Transition to the Red Sea', and the poet Rodolfo writes the game with his bruised fingers in the cold. Although Marcello wants to throw the chair, which is the last wooden item in the room, perhaps not burning since days, Rodolfo walks off saying that it would be better to burn curtains. The orchestra accompanied by the rhythmic, colorful discoveries of the dialogue of two friends with a graceful recital technique. The philosopher Colline enters and sadly declares that the grocery store they are shopping for on Christmas day is closed. The salvation musicians Schaunard are good news. Three days ago he took the money for the course, poisoning the animal with the help of the maid who flirted to get the money quickly, engaged to give a strange-looking Englishman his parrot. The pocket money was filled with food and wine, and also brought wood. They will eat the food on the roof and celebrate Christmas in Momus's cup. Four friends cheerfully lit a stove and set up the table, while the host Benoit came. He wants to borrow his rent for two months. Friends say that they see the man with a girl, and if the debt keeps going, they will tell the wife, and they open the door among the laughter.

Christmas night is in front of Cafe Momus in Monmartre. The crowd is joyful. Rodolfo and Mimi approach the table where three friends sit; The poet introduces the girl to them. Marcello asks Mimi if Rodolfo has accepted a gift, Mimi shows his hat proudly. They all speak cheerfully, they run half-serious thoughts about love. Meanwhile, the painter Marcello's ex-lover, Musetta, appears with a rich man named Alcindoro. The jealous painter calls out to the waiter: 'Bring me a bottle of poison!' Musetta sat on the side of the table. It is understood that although the two genera are separated, they still love each other. Among them, there is a table-topping debate. Musetta, with his poses and Marcello's grunts, tells the famous coquettish waltz. When the dance is over, he takes his shoe out in screams and squeezes his so-called foot. He tells Alcindoro to bring a new pair of shoes. When the poor old man moves away, he rushes to the table where the young people sit, and the lover falls into Marcello's arms. Entertainment is the top. Christmas passes begin. The young people decide to go, Musetta says that the account pouches of both masters will be paid by the elderly who will come soon, and they all go away by joining the arm. Alcindoro returns with a pair of new shoes, encounters with calculator pads, a chair is demolished.
