STEPHEN KING'S DOCTOR SLEEP - Final Trailer .
In 1980, sometime after their traumatic experiences in the Overlook Hotel, Danny Torrance and his mother Wendy live in Florida. Because of his psychic ability, "the shining", Danny is still haunted by one of the Overlook's ghosts - the rotting woman from Room 237. The ghost of Dick Hallorann teaches him to lock malevolent ghosts in imaginary "boxes" in his mind. Meanwhile, a cult of quasi-immortal psychic vampires known as the True Knot, led by Rose the Hat, extend their lives by feeding on "steam", a psychic essence produced in the dying moments of people with the shining. In 2011, Danny (now going by "Dan") has become an alcoholic to suppress his shining. After stealing money from a single mother following a one-night stand, he realizes he has hit rock bottom. He moves to a small town in New Hampshire and befriends Billy Freeman, who gets him a job and becomes his AA sponsor. Dan begins to rehabilitate and soon finds a job at a hospice. He uses his shining to comfort dying patients, who give him the nickname "Doctor Sleep". He also begins receiving telepathic communications from Abra Stone, a young girl whose shining is even more powerful than his. Meanwhile, Rose recruits a teenager, Snakebite Andi, into her cult after observing her ability to telepathically control people. In 2019, the True Knot are starving. They abduct a young boy, Bradley, and torture him to death to extract as much steam as possible. A teenage Abra senses the event, and her distress alerts both Dan and Rose. Rose sets her sights on Abra, planning to extract her steam. Realizing the danger, Abra visits Dan and says she can track the cult if she can touch Bradley's baseball glove, but Dan insists that she stay away and avoid attracting attention. That night, Rose enters her astral form and infiltrates Abra's mind. Abra retaliates by entering Rose's mind and injuring her hand. Wounded, Rose returns to her body and sends the True Knot after Abra.
