Based on Puccini’s La Boheme, Rent paints a modern day portrait of struggling bohemians and artists making their way in New York’s infamous Alphabet City at the dawn of the 1990s. It tells the story of a group of friends struggling to live and make rent against the gritty background of New York’s East Village while holding fast to their bohemian ideals and pursuits.
