Starring the original, founding band members, Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner, the film chronicles one of heavy metal's most influential bands, the Canadian group, ANVIL. Created by these two as 14 year-old teenagers and despite achieving phenomenal success, ANVIL dropped off the edge into obscurity from their early 1980's mega fame status.

Twenty-six years later, Sacha Gervasi, a former roadie for the band at just 16, directs ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL and uncovers what became of ANVIL after the international release of their globally successful and influential album release in 1982 of 'Metal on Metal'.
