Luna Valente is a 16-year-old girl who loves to rollerskate and lives with her adoptive parents in Cancún, Mexico, living in the mansion of the family for whom her parents work. Luna works as a delivery girl at a fast food joint with her best friend, Simon. When on a delivery she bumps into a boy named Mateo. Mateo flirts with her and nicknames her Delivery Girl, Luna nicknames him Rich Boy.

However, her life is completely turned upside-down when the mansion's new owner, Sharon Benson arrives. Luna has a bad encounter with Sharon's goddaughter, Ambar, when she accidentally spills a milkshake on Ambar. Ambar then pushes her in the pool with her skates on. Luckily Mateo, who happens to be Ambar's Boyfriend, saves her from drowning. Sharon is pleased with the work performance of Luna's parents. So Sharon offers them triple pay and to give Luna education in one of the best schools, if they go work in her manor in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Forced to accept, Luna has to leave her friends, job, and life behind, her transition is eased when she comes across the roller skating rink named el Jam & Roller, where her existing passion for roller skating is reinvigorated as she discovers the world of freestyle skate-dancing. While the rink brings makes her meet her new friends Nina, Jim, and Yam, a new job as skating rink assistant, and a new passion. She's also forced to endure the challenges of a vigorous new school system. To make matters worse, Luna is the target of Ambar, who goes to the same school in which she is the most popular. Ambar uses her two best friends, Delfi and Jazmin to also target Luna.

Luna's best friend, Simon, decides to go after her, leading him to form the Roller Band with Nico and Pedro (Part of the Staff at the Jam & Roller). Luna then begins to fall in love with Matteo, who like Ambar is the most popular at school.

Meanwhile, Sharon is threaten by her past. As she discovers that her niece, Sol Benson is still alive. Many years ago Sharon burned the manor down leading to the death of her sister Lili and Bernie, Lili's husband, who Sharon loved. Sharon believed Sol, daughter of Lili and Bernie, also died in the fire. Sharon as the closet legal relative to Bernie changed her last name to Benson and kept Lili and Bernie's fortune. Along with the help of her personal assistant, Rey, they try to investigate to find out who and where is Sol Benson.

Meanwhile, many years back, a worker of the manor helped little Sol Benson escape the fire. That man was named Roberto and he left the baby girl at an orphanage in Mexico City. She was eventually adopted by Monica and Miguel Valente. They named her Luna because of the pendant she had. Destiny brought Luna/Sol back to her birth home and past without knowing it.

Roberto ends up dying in a hospital. But he has the Sun part of Sol's special medallion (which is a Sun and Moon that conjoin). He gives the Sun piece to a pair of hospital employees, Tino and Cato (two clumsy best friends). Roberto asks them to go to the Benson Family to find and return it to Sol.

Sharon and Rey investigate any possible connection to the Benson Family, not knowing that Luna is Sol Benson in reality. Sharon and Rey realize Tino and Cato aren't so smart so they stand no threat but they decide to keep them close as workers in the manor. Tino and Cato have their own storyline as they try to accomplish their mission given by Roberto. Cato also falls in love with Amanda, the house's maid.

Meanwhile, there are other storylines that happen. Like the rising of the Roller Band (Nico, Pedro, and Simon). Others include Nina's (Luna's new best friend) journey as FelicityForNow, an undercover account that lets her speak her real thoughts and meanwhile she is in love with Gaston, Matteo's best friend. Jim (Jimena) and Yam (Yamila) are two best friends who do it all together. They are both in love with Ramiro, an egotistic guy aspiring to live off his skating and rapping. But this all changes when Jim begins to fall for Nico and Ramiro falls in love with Yam. The other storyline is Jazmin and Delfi, Ambar's best friends and accomplices. They have their own channel named "Fab'n'Chic". Delfi likes Gaston but then begins to better herself when she gets closer to Pedro.

Luna must juggle her new responsibilities, her new course load, and the drama of her various relationships while unfurling the mysteries of the disconcertingly real dreams she has of her past and future.

The holidays are over and everyone returns home. Luna walks to a revealing truth, with illusion, in her reunion with Matteo.

In the Benson mansion is a tense atmosphere after the arrival of Alfredo, father of Mrs. Sharon, changes the routine and brings back memories of the past.
