In 1968, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the Annabelle doll to their home after claims from two nurses, Debbie and Camilla, that the doll often performed violent activities in their apartment. The doll summons spirits to attack Ed as they drive to their home but he survives and Annabelle is locked in a sacred glass case in the couple’s artifacts room and blessed by Father Gordon to ensure her evil is contained.
Four years later, the Warrens welcome Mary Ellen, who will be in charge of babysitting the couple’s daughter, Judy, to their home when they go overnight to investigate another case. At school, Judy sees the spirit of a priest that begins following her. After shopping at her friend’s supermarket and talking with her crush, Bob Palmeri, Mary Ellen starts to bake a cake for Judy’s birthday. Her friend Daniela arrives uninvited to the Warrens’ home. Daniela, who is curious about speaking to the dead after the death of her father, gives a pair of roller skates to Judy as her birthday present and convinces her to play with Mary Ellen outside. While they are away, Daniela tries to get into the artifacts room but finds the room securely locked.
