Mark Renton has it all: He’s good-looking, young, with a pretty girlfriend and a place at university.
But there’s no room for him in the ’80s. Thatcher’s government is destroying working-class communities across Britain, and the post-war certainties of full employment, educational opportunity and a welfare state are gone. When his family starts to fracture, Mark’s life swings out of control. The prequel to the world-renowned Trainspotting.
