    Located in the Rocky Mountains, the Overlook Palace is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. Comfort, luxury, voluptuousness… In winter, the hotel is closed. Cut off from the world by the cold and the snow. Then, only a guard lives there. The one who was hired that winter is called Jack Torrance: he is an alcoholic, a failed writer, who tries to escape despair. With him live his wife, Wendy, and their child, Danny. Danny, who has the gift of seeing, of resurrecting things and beings that are believed to be gone. What he feels in the hundred and ten empty rooms of the Overlook Palace is the presence of the demon.
