Two rival gangs battle for living space - the local Jets and immigrants from Puerto Rico, Sharks, but even the Jets are the descendants of immigrants, often in the first generation. At a dance night at the local gym Tony, the best friend of Riff, the Jets' leader, meets Maria, the sister of Bernando, the Sharks' leader. It is love at first sight. Later on during a fight between the gangs Riff is killed by Bernando and Tony, who wanted to reconcile the conflict, seeks revenge and kills Bernando. Further battle for survival of the pair of lovers in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is impossible. Tony is shot in the end and dies in Maria's arms; she is the only survivor and calls for reconciliation.
