Plot summary

What is Doctor Sleep movie plot?

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

In 2011, Dan Torrance, still traumatized from his family's 1980 ordeal at the Overlook hotel, lives in a New Hampshire town and drinks alcohol to suppress his shining. He is recovering through Alcoholics Anonymous and becomes a hospice orderly, where he uses his shining to comfort dying patients, who nickname him "Doctor Sleep". Meanwhile, the True Knot, a cult of psychics led by 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 2019, the True Knot are starving as steam has become increasingly rare. They torture a boy to death for steam, which is sensed by Abra Stone (Kyliegh Curran), a young girl whose shining is even greater than Dan's. She telepathically alerts Dan about the murder, but Rose senses Abra in the process. Rose projects her consciousness across the country and infiltrates Abra's mind, but is physically injured by a psychic trap set by Abra. Rose sends the remaining members after Abra for steam.
Abra informs Dan about the True Knot. Although he is initially skeptical about stopping them, he changes his mind and recruits his friend, Billy Freeman (Cliff Curtis), and Abra's father, Dave, to help. They successfully kill most of the group except Rose, but Billy and Dave are killed and Abra is captured by Rose's partner, Crow Daddy (Zahn McClarnon). Dan shines into Abra and saves her from Crow Daddy, killing the True Knot member in the process. As a last resort, Dan brings Abra to the Overlook, believing it will be equally dangerous for Rose. He starts the hotel's boiler and explores the dormant building, "awakening" it with his shining. At the same time, he has visions of his time at the hotel, including his father Jack's breaking into a bathroom door to kill his mother Wendy.
