Danny Torrance and his mother, Wendy, may have survived the horrors of the Overlook Hotel but that doesn’t mean that those events didn’t stick with them for life. Now as an adult, Dan (McGregor) has tried to shut away those memories and quiet “the shine” within him, but the years of trauma have taken their toll. He’s become an alcoholic spiraling into a messy life. He wasn’t the only one gifted with the shine as he learns that a young girl named Abra (Curran) may be one of the most powerful kids with that ability. She becomes the target of Rose the Hat (Ferguson) and her gang known as the True Knot. They hunt out kids with the shine killing them using their steam/shine to give them life. As Rose becomes aware of Abra’s abilities, she attempts to track her down and it’s up to Dan to face his old demons in order to protect her.
