A dance movie with a difference, this is the story of a group of men who become dancers celebrating the sights and sounds of the working man.

The working-class man is celebrated in this musical-with-a-difference. Sean (Adam Garcia) wants out of the life in a steel mill, and dance seems to be the way to do it.

Sean builds a troop of he-men dancers. Their style is heavy on percussion, using the boots and tools of their trade to create a vibrant, loud, and joyous sound.

Naturally the film is full of sweaty beefcake.

It's a bit in the tradition of Garland and Rooney - a 'lets hold a show in the barn' movie.

Fun. Exhuberant. A celebration of men and their boots.
