It is directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King. Warner Bros will release the film in India on November 8.

"Doctor Sleep" begins as Torrance carries the trauma of the Overlook Hotel into adulthood. He meets Abra, a teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the "shine", and narrates his attempt to protect her from 'Rose the Hat', who feeds off the shine of innocents in her quest for immortality.

Kyliegh Curran will be seen in the role of Abra.
