Masato Hijikata (Zettai Kareshi - Kanzen Muketsu no Koibito Robot, Night Head) is directing the film, with scripts by Arisa Kaneko (Densha Otoko). The film will open on June 4.

The story centers around Kie Hirano, a 30-year old female office worker with a large-scale imagination. She gets to know Mitsumasa Kōdai, a handsome colleague, who also happens to be a telepath who can read people's thoughts. Mitsumasa is charmed by Kie's personality, and they start a relationship. Mitsumasa's mother Yūko judges Kie to be unfit to marry her son, but the family matriarch Ann makes Yūko retract the statement. Now Ann teaches Kie how to be a proper lady, and Kie's life becomes intertwined with the Kōdai family.

Morimoto (Kenshūi Nanako, Deka Wanko) launched the Kōdai-ke no Hitobito manga in Shueisha's Monthly You magazine in February 2013, after publishing a one-shot "Kōdai-ke no Hitobito" manga in the magazine's December 2012 issue. Shueisha published the manga's fourth compiled book volume last September.
