    This is a musical about an impossible love story between two

     

    persons belonging to two different gangs in the west side of

     

    NY. their love is impossible because their gangs are fighting/

     

    struggling each other which is paradoxical as they both have

     

    many common points: they are immigrants, poor, gangsters, excluded

     

    and most of all Americans. The problem is that their origins/cultures

     

    are different. The lovers represent a link that could lead to peace.

     

    Maybe the message is that love is a powerful tool for reconciliation

     

    and acceptation or cultural acknowledgment. The film echoes Romeo

     

    and Juliet.
