在出版社幽暗的一角,坐著早被社會遺忘的「字典編輯部」,熱血總編輯卻激情地宣布,要編著一本史無前例的革命性新辭典【大渡海】,盡收天下潮語於書中。恃有幾分型男本錢的小編西岡(小田切讓 飾)不為所動, 面對著厚比枕頭的字典,繼續流水式作業。馬上要退休的主編眼見後繼無人,決定外出找人接班。書蟲馬締(松田龍平 飾)不善辭令,行為閃縮,但一身字典氣息 卻吸引了主編招聘他入伍。本身是語言學碩士的馬締深感覓得終身事業,每日沉醉於字海之中,發誓要編出史上最完美的字典。他的傻勁甚至感染了向來敷衍了事的西岡。就在此時,馬締遇上了女神小香(宮崎葵 飾), 但飽讀詩書的他竟然找不到最好的文字表達心跡;另一邊廂,出版社突然下令腰斬【大渡海】這盤蝕本生意! 馬締和西岡為了保住字典的性命,毅然作出膽大包天的行動!老總說,找到最恰當的文字是最幸福的事,馬締 在字海浮沉,終於開竅了…… 真正的語言藝術,讓他找到了人生目標,也找到了真愛。

Majime (Ryuhei Matsuda) is, by all accounts, a word person. Physically clumsy and socially awkward, he only truly feels at home within the rules and confines of lexicography. After struggling in the sales division of the Genbu Books publishing company, he manages to land his dream job in the Dictionary Editorial Department, where he can use his talents to compile a new dictionary, called "The Great Passage." Partnering with Majime is a callow young man (Joe Odagiri) who is slow to develop an appreciation for the challenging task ahead. Majime’s love of language, however, leaves him speechless when he meets Kaguya (Aoi Miyazaki), his landlady's granddaughter, who moves into his building and beguiles him with her obsession with cooking knives and fine cuisine. Majime soon finds that the words he has studied his whole life are inadequate to express his true feelings for Kaguya. Meanwhile, complications begin piling up as the dictionary department descends into chaos. Rising Japanese director Yuya Ishii sets this gentle dramatic comedy in the 1990s, well before the Wild West attitude of Google and Wikipedia. THE GREAT PASSAGE is a kindhearted tribute to a time when the written word still contained an element of magic and romance.
