The Jets are a gang of young Americans, whose rising tensions with the Puerto Rican gang The Sharks, starts to cause issues in the neighbourhood. Aggressions rise when Tony and Maria, two lovers on either side of the conflict, start a secret relationship leading to violence between the rival gangs.
