What is Doctor Sleep about?

In 1980, sometime after their traumatic experiences in the haunted Overlook Hotel, Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) and his mother Wendy live in Florida. Danny sees one of the Overlook's ghosts - the rotting woman from Room 237 - in his bathroom. Dick Hallorann (Carl Lumbly), a benevolent spirit, explains that the ghosts feed on Danny's psychic ability, his "shining". Now that the hotel has been abandoned, the starving ghosts are pursuing Danny. Hallorann teaches him to lock them in imaginary "boxes" in his mind. Meanwhile, the True Knot, a cult of psychic vampires led by Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson), extend their lifespans by consuming "steam", a psychic essence released as they torture and kill those who have the shining.
In 2011, Danny - now "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 New Hampshire town and befriends Billy Freeman (Cliff Curtis), who finds him an apartment and becomes his AA sponsor. Rehabilitating, Dan becomes a hospice orderly. He uses his shining to comfort dying patients, who nickname him "Doctor Sleep". He also begins receiving telepathic communications from Abra Stone (Kyliegh Curran), a young girl whose shining is even more powerful than his. Meanwhile, Rose and her lover, Crow Daddy (Zahn McClarnon), observe a teenager named Snakebite Andi (Emily Alyn Lind) who has the ability to psychically control individuals. They later recruit Andi into the True Knot after feeding her the steam of Violet (Violet McGraw), a young girl who the cult murdered at the start of the film.
