Bootmen is a comedy drama romance film that was written by Steve Worland, Hilary Linstead and Dein Perry, who also directed. The movie was adapted by the director from his performance piece and features Adam Garcia, Sophie Lee and Sam Worthington. The story follows a group of young dancers who use inventive ways to make their own tap shoes, screwing metal plates into the soles of work boots. Their style of dance includes stomping in unison on steel while banging on various objects.

Sean (played by Adam Garcia) is in Australia, where he dreams of becoming a professional dancer. His steelworker father, however, opposes the plan. While living in Newcastle, a steel town, he gains the affections of Linda (played by Sophia Lee). She is a hairdresser and very supportive of his dreams.

Sean runs off to Sydney in pursuit of his career. He has left behind brother Mitchell, who continues to bask in his father's favor as he adopts a lucrative occupation stealing vehicles for their parts.

While in Sydney, Sean comes across Walter, a hardened choreographer (played by William Zappa) who has become well known in dance films. However, Sean is not able to impress him. Sean is very talented, and it looks like Walter is jealous. Sean also angers the star of the show since his girlfriend is enamored with him. As a result, Sean is fired.

Sean goes back to Newcastle upset but not entirely defeated. Mitchell has managed to commandeer Linda by getting her drunk. He plies her with theories about how Sean is probably with someone else by now. He seduces her, and when Sean arrives, he realizes that they have been together intimately.

As a result, Sean becomes very depressed. Sean realizes that the mill workers could do better with some computer training. To get some computers, he organizes a benefit, gathering friends to put on a show to raise the cash.
