When he gets a job as winter caretaker for the Overlook Hotel, a secluded resort in the Colorado Rockies, he thinks it's a way to get his life back on track. He and his wife, Wendy, and son, Danny, will be the only people in the Overlook the entire winter. Everything seems to be going well at first. After the snow falls, however, Jack finds that they really aren't alone. Danny's precognitive power, his Shining, unlocks a dormant evil in the hotel and it preys on the entire family - through Jack.
A recovering alcoholic must wrestle with demons within and without when he and his family move into a haunted hotel as caretakers.
