Jack Torrance takes a winter caretaker position at the remote Overlook Hotel in the Rocky Mountains, which closes every winter season. Manager Stuart Ullman divulges that a previous caretaker, Charles Grady, killed his family and himself in the hotel. In Boulder, Jack’s son, Danny, has a premonition and seizure. Jack’s wife, Wendy, tells the doctor about a past incident where Jack dislocates Danny’s shoulder during a drunken rage. Before leaving for the seasonal break, head chef Dick Hallorann informs Danny of a telepathic ability the two share, which he calls “shining”. Hallorann tells Danny the hotel also has a “shine” due to residues from unpleasant past events, and warns him to avoid Room 237.

Danny starts having frightening visions. Meanwhile, Jack’s mental health deteriorates; he gets nowhere with his writing, is prone to violent outbursts, and has dreams of killing his family. Danny gets physically bruised after visiting an unlocked Room 237 out of curiosity. Jack encounters a female ghost in the room, but blames Danny for self-inflicting the bruises. Staying sober ever since hurting Danny, Jack is enticed back to drinking by the ghostly bartender Lloyd. Ghostly figures, including the butler Delbert Grady, then begin appearing in the Gold Room. Grady informs Jack that Danny has reached out to Hallorann using his “talent”, and says that Jack must “correct” his wife and child.
