Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona's deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.

This film is based on the Mexican legend that translates to "The Weeping Woman." The cursed tale details the ghost of a woman who can be heard crying near rivers, as she searches for her lost children. It's said if you hear her cries to turn the other way, otherwise you may be the victim of some sort of misfortune or even death. According to the legend, it's even worse for children, whom she is apparently specifically drawn to, thinking they're her own and will attempt to drown them.
