Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he suffered as a child in Overlook, Dan Torrance struggled to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shaken when he meets Abra, a brave teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as "brilliance." Instinctively acknowledging that Dan shares his power, Abra sought him out, desperate for her help against the merciless Rose. Hat and his followers, The True Knot, who feed on the brilliance of innocents in their quest for immortality. Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal battle of life and death with Rose. Abra's innocence and fearless embrace of her brilliance force Dan to resort to his own powers like never before – while facing his fears and awakening the ghosts of the past.
Adapted from Stephen King's bestselling sequel, the film stars Ewan McGregor (Star Wars: Episodes I, II and III, T2 Trainspotting) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible Films, The Greatest Showman) as Rose the Hat and Kyliegh Curran, in their big movie debut as Abra. The main cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Lind Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.
