The Curse of La Llorona - Official Trailer .
In 1673 Mexico, a family plays in a field, and the youngest son gives his mother a necklace. The boy later finds his mother violently drowning his brother in a stream. Horrified, he runs, but his mother catches him and drowns him, too.
300 years later, in 1973, Los Angeles, caseworker Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini) investigates the truancy of client Patricia Alvarez's two children. Arriving at Patricia's house for a welfare check, she finds the children locked behind a door. Patricia attacks her and is taken away by the police. Patricia's sons, Carlos (Oliver Alexander) and Tomas (Aiden Lewandowski), tell Anna to keep them in the room, so they are protected. Ignoring their warnings, she takes them to the child-services shelter. There, Tomas sleepwalks, and Carlos follows him until both boys see a woman in a white dress who attacks them.
The boys are found drowned in a river, and Anna is called out to the scene. She brings her own children, Chris (Roman Christou) and Sam, and they stay in the car while she investigates. She hears Patricia, accused of her sons' murders, screaming that it was Anna's fault for taking her sons and that Patricia had tried to stop the malevolent force of "La Llorona (Marisol Ramirez)."
Chris leaves the car out of curiosity and encounters La Llorona (The Weeping Woman), who seizes his wrist and leaves burns. The next day, La Llorona also grabs Sam and leaves identical burn marks. Anna interviews Patricia, who has an alibi for the time of her sons' deaths. Patricia reveals that in her hatred for Anna, she prayed to La Llorona to bring her own boys back and take Anna's children instead. Anna encounters La Llorona when the spirit attempts to drown Sam in the bathtub. The ghost leaves burn marks on Anna's arm too. Anna seeks help from Father Perez (Tony Amendola), who relates the case to his previous experiences with a haunted porcelain doll. Perez (Ricardo Mamood-Vega) tells Anna about former priest Rafael Olvera (Raymond Cruz), who can help them. Rafael arrives at Anna's house, setting up items for protection. In the night, La Llorona repeatedly attacks them and attempts to drown Anna and Sam in the pool. Anna pulls off La Llorona's necklace in the struggle.
