Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country

The Jets and The Sharks...two rival gangs (one white, one Puerto Rican) on New York City's explosive West Side of the 1950s. At a dance in the neighbourhood gymnasium, Jets leader Riff challenges Sharks leader Bernardo to a rumble. Jets member Tony sees - and falls in love with - Maria. And she with him. But Maria is Bernardo's sister! Their love blossoms. The rumble is about to begin. Tony's gesture to Bernardo for peace is misunderstood. Riff is killed by Bernardo and Tony stabs Bernardo. Maria wants to hate Tony for killing her brother, but can't. Tony comes out of hiding, searching for Maria, and finds her. A tender scene...then a pistol shot. Tony is dead. Together, The Jets and The Sharks bear Tony's body away... followed by the lone, broken figure of Maria.
