Set in an underbelly of Edinburgh the city fathers never dreamed of, Trainspotting is the story of Mark and his so-called friends - a bunch of losers, liars, psychos, thieves and junkies. Hilarious but harrowing, the film charts the disintegration of their friendship as they proceed, seemingly inevitably, towards self-destruction. Mark alone has the insight and opportunity to escape his fate - but then again, does he really want to choose life?
