'An Drochaid - The Bridge Rising' is a feature length documentary marking the most successful popular campaign of the modern age, when ordinary people took on the power of government and the Bank Of America - and won.

This album features the original soundtrack by leading Cape Breton composer and guitarist Scott MacMillan.
