Amid this backdrop, Danny is presented with an opportunity to use the shining power to help a teenager named Abra (Kyliegh Curran) who has similar gifts. She has sought Danny's help in battling Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson) and The True Knot, her followers who seek immortality and will feed off the shine of others to do it.
