Doctor Sleep Synopsis
Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) carries the trauma of the Overlook Hotel into adulthood and has become a reflection of his murderous father, with lingering rage and a drinking problem that dulls his pain as well as his ‘shining’ powers.
Those powers return when he embraces sobriety and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice. He establishes a psychic connection with a girl (Kyleigh Curran) who shares his extreme abilities, and who is being targeted by a cult who makes others like them suffer painful deaths in order to absorb their powers.
