‘Trainspotting’ Plot Synopsis

Renton is a heroin addict living in Edinburgh. His best friends are Spud (also a heroin addict), Sick Boy (also a heroin addict), and Tommy. While Tommy’s not an addict originally, problems in his life result in him wanting to use drugs. Renton, Spud, and Sick Boy often use with Allison, the mother of an infant they call baby Dawn. To feed their habit, the boys steal and rob locals with the assistance of a criminal acquaintance named Begbie. His violent tendencies ignite on the slightest provocation. Renton tells himself he wants to quit using, and upon meeting a young girl named Diane, he realizes that he can never get clean in his current environment. Now he must stop hanging with Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie, and Allison if he wants to live.
