A portrait of the acclaimed band, the Avett Brothers, as they create their hit album 'True Sadness.'
Filmed with extraordinary access over the course of more than two years, the film charts the band's decade-and-a-half rise while chronicling their present-day collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin.
With the recording process as a backdrop, the film intimately depicts a lifelong bond and unique creative partnership, as the band -- fronted by brothers Scott and Seth Avett -- weathers marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business.
More than just a music documentary, "May It Last" is a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time.
