West Side Story

After being falsely told that Maria has been killed by Chino, a distraught Tony wanders the streets, yelling for Chino to come kill him too. He discovers she is not dead when he sees her from across the playground, coming to meet him. Forgetting his sorrow, he runs towards her, and she towards him, but Chino heard Tony's screaming for him, and arrives at the same moment, shooting and killing Tony. Tony dies in Maria's arms. Maria, now a widow, declares that all the Sharks and the Jets are both responsible for all the deaths because of their hate. The Jets and Sharks at least temporarily put their feud behind them and carry Tony's body off together. Chino is escorted to a police car.
