The world will shine again.
Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel.
Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child, he has fought to find some semblance of peace. But, that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognising that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.
Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
Based on Doctor Sleep (the novel) by Stephen King.
