Plot summary

What is Doctor Sleep movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Doctor Sleep" movie plot summary.

In 1980, Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) and his mother Wendy live in Florida, still traumatized by their ordeal at the Overlook hotel. Dick Hallorann (Carl Lumbly), now a benevolent spirit, explains that the hotel's ghosts feed on Danny's psychic ability, his "shining". Now that the hotel has been abandoned, the starving ghosts are pursuing Danny. Halloran teaches him to lock them in imaginary "boxes" in his mind. Meanwhile, the True Knot, a cult of psychics led by Rose O'Hara, also known as Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson), extend their lifespans by consuming "steam", a psychic essence released by torturing and killing those who have the shining.
In 2011, Danny (now going by Dan) has become an alcoholic to suppress his shining. After stealing money from a single mother, with whom he had a one-night stand, Dan realizes he has hit rock bottom. He moves to a small New Hampshire town and befriends Billy Freeman (Cliff Curtis), who gets him an apartment. Billy then becomes Dan's Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor; Dan becomes a hospice orderly and 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 greater than his.
In 2019, the True Knot are starving as steam has become increasingly rare. They abduct a young boy in Iowa and torture him to death for his steam. A teenage Abra senses the event and alerts Dan, in the form of the word MURDER appearing on his wall. Rose also senses Abra, and plans to extract her steam. Abra visits Dan and tells him she can track the cult if she touches Bradley's baseball glove. Dan refuses to help, telling her to suppress her shining to stay safe. That night, Rose projects her consciousness across the country and infiltrates Abra's mind, but is physically injured by a psychic trap set by her. After cult member Grandpa Flick (Carel Struycken) dies of starvation, Rose sends the remaining members after Abra.
