If you somehow can't open the file, here is what you need:

Create a dotted, animated line(with a shape layer for example, just make sure its long enough). Set its anchor point to its left. move it and link it to your left beam null.
Add this expression to its rotation:

a = thisComp.layer("Point A").position;
b = thisComp.layer("Point B").position;
v = b-a;
radiansToDegrees(Math.atan2(v[1],v[0]))


Set this layer as to alpha matte bellow your beam.
