Kazushige Numata and his wife Kayoko have two sons. The first son Shinichi studies well, but the second son Shigeyuki does not. Kazushige and Kayoko are worried about Shigeyuki, who might even fail to enter high school. Making things worse, Shigeyuki stays at home and don't go to school.

Kazushige and his wife Kayoko finds an ad for a private tutor on the internet. They contact and then meet Yoshimoto (Sho Sakurai), who is the private tutor. During their meeting, both parties lays out one condition to work with each other. The father stipulates that Shigeyuki must go back to school within a week or Yoshimoto will be fired. Meanwhile, Yoshimoto stipulates that the parents must not interfere with his work. Yoshimoto's extraordinary teaching methods then influences not only Shigeyuki, but also his entire family.


Finished watching The Family Game (Kazoku Gemu) recently. A show which revolves about a family that looked good on the outside but not realizing the ugly truth within it. 

I thought this film plot was nicely portrayed, keeping me in suspense. The main character will be the private tutor who uses different teaching methods to influence the family son to grow stronger and smarter in tackling different issues face in school. The story goes on from there where the family slowly discovered many ugly truth and try to amend it. 

There was also a secret truth about the private tutor on the reasons why he was doing this stuff all the while. It will be revealed towards to end of the show. 

Was impressed by Sho Sakurai acting capability here with his expressive expression! And yup, Shiori Kutsuna do look cute too!
