Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, "It Chapter Two" brings the characters--who've long since gone their separate ways--back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
The film centres on a dysfunctional and codependent family who are struggling to maintain the family business, a small community theatre in New York City. Patriarch Mel is a failed playwright; his daughter Jackie is a quirky actress stuck in perennial adolescence despite being mother to teenage daughter Dodge; his daughter Rachel (Utt) is a business-minded lesbian whose attempts to be the responsible member of the family have made her something of a control freak.
After Mel self-sabotages a career opportunity that Rachel has lined up for him, her angry outburst causes him to have a fatal heart attack, which leads to the discovery that he had lied to her and Jackie for much of their lives about the identity and death of their mother; their real mother is in fact soap opera actress Sherrell, who has been left ownership of the theatre and the family home in Mel's will.
