What if someone told you you could have the life you've always dreamed? All you have to do is live dangerously and create furiously — together. Once upon a time, a group of miners did just that.

The true story of a Cape Breton mining town transformed from despondency to independence thanks to a rebel priest's belief we can all become "Masters of Our Own Destiny."

Tompkinsville is the story of Father Jimmy Tompkins, Joe Laben, and the credit union and co-operative movement.

"Tompkinsville is a remarkable feat, with plenty of heartbreaking, tender, and laugh-out-loud moments. More than anything, it offers a profound reminder of the power of community and the human spirit.”    - The Chronicle Herald
