The Shining

The Shining

Jack Torrance is a temperamental writer who is trying to rebuild his and his family's life after his alcoholism and volatile temper cause him to lose his teaching position at a small preparatory school.

Having given up alcohol, he accepts a job as a winter caretaker at a large and isolated hotel in Colorado, in the hope this will reestablish him as a responsible person, enable him to finish a promising play, and resume his career.

He moves to the hotel (the Overlook) with his wife, Wendy, and young son, Danny, who is telepathic (the "shining" of the title) and sensitive to supernatural forces.
