On the mean streets of New York City, two gangs are in a long-lasting duel. The Sharks, a Puerto Rican gang, grapple with the difficulties of assimilating into American society. The Jets, the American gang, want to resist newcomers entering their territory. In the midst of this rivalry, a Jet, Tony, falls in love with a beautiful Shark girl, Maria. After a fight between the Jets and the Sharks, Tony makes a rash decision and ends up paying for it in a huge way.
