Two rival gangs, the Italian-American Jets and Puerto Rican Sharks, fight for supremacy over New York’s West Side. Jets leader Riff (Mike Faist) and Sharks leader Bernardo (David Alvarez) plan a “rumble” — but when Riff’s best friend Tony (Ansel Elgort) and Bernardo’s sister Maria (Rachel Zegler) meet and fall in love, the stakes become life-threatening.
