The movie follows the story of Riana and her parents who were forced out of their house and into her uncle Jonah’s home as they face their issues, according to the World of Buzz. There, Riana discovers an old doll called Riani.


This leads to Riana spending more time with the doll and speaking to it. She later refuses to speak to anyone else except for the doll. Riana’s school life becomes affected by her friendship with Riani as she starts skipping classes.

Riana’s counseling teacher, Cikgu Klara, eventually becomes worried and visits her at her home.

After that, Riana’s parents start to encounter strange things in the house and it becomes worse when her counseling teacher brings her friends along to help the girl.

“The Sacred Riana: Beginning,” produced by Malaysian studio Horizon Film Entertainment, is set for official release in Malaysia on Dec. 22.
