After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.
Irvine Welsh, who is the author of Trainspotting, Porno, and Skagboys, makes a cameo appearance in T2: Trainspotting as Begbie's friend Mikey Forrester. Welsh also made a brief appearance in Trainspotting playing the same character.
