"Rent" chronicles a year and a half in the lives of seven of friends: Mark, a filmmaker and the show's narrator; his roommate Roger, a musician; their friend Tom Collins; Angel, a street musician; Maureen, a performance artist; Joanne, a Harvard Law School graduate; and Mimi, an S&M dancer who lives in Mark and Roger's building.
