Plot

The plot focuses on the 16 year old Beatriz "Bía" Urquiza, a girl who likes to draw. When Bía was very young, she loved making music with her older sister Helena. Helena was herself a singer and a member of the band MoonDust, which included her boyfriend Víctor and his little brother Lucas Gutiérrez. One day the band got into a traffic accident in which Lucas and apparently Helena died and only Víctor survived, who is now paraplegic and has to sit in a wheelchair. Bía still suffers from the loss of her sister ten years later, and neither have the Urquiza or Gutiérrez families processed the loss of their children or siblings. There has been hostility between the two families since the accident, particularly the Gutiérrez make life difficult for the Urquiza because they make Helena responsible for the accident.

The situation escalates when Bía and Manuel fall in love because Manuel is the cousin of Víctor and Alex Gutiérrez. While their love meets with little approval within their families, they both try to make the best of the situation and fight for their love. But among other things, Alex does everything to separate the two and makes life hell for them. The two find support from their friends and from Víctor, who best copes with Manuel from his family, and vice versa. In addition, a mysterious young woman named Ana appears in the Residence Kunst, who has a connection to what has happened in the past. And after a short time it turns out that there are some secrets and intrigues in the Gutiérrez family that reveal terrible deeds.

Will Bía and Manuel be able to overcome all obstacles? Who is Ana really? Will Manuel learn the truth about his origins? What secret do Víctor and Antonio hide about the accident? Will Bía be able to continue her sister's legacy? And will the whole story still have a happy ending, or will it end tragically like Romeo and Juliet?
