    I watched this drama recently after a friend recommended me to watch. You need to watch all the episodes to completely understand the story and theme of this drama.It is based on the novel "Kazoku Gemu" by Yohei Honma. The lead is played by ARASHI group member Sho Sakurai.

    The story revolves around dysfunctional Numata family who appear perfect on the outside. Internally the family has lot of unsettled issues. The family consists of father,mother and their two sons. Each of the members have their shortcoming which they try to hide from each other and don't have courage to acknowledge,accept and change themselves.

    The family hires a tutor Koya Yoshimoto(Sho Sakurai) to tutor their youngest,under-performing son who hates going to school.The tutor manipulates the family members in a way that leads to their breakdown. They finally acknowledge openly their shortcomings and put effort in changing themselves.They try to build family bond which was missing earlier.

    School bullying and hypocrisies of the society are used as main theme.

    Watch it if you want out of box dramas.
