Continuing from where Blue Mountains ends, Yukiko Shimazaki presents a passionate defence before the school board and townsfolk on the subject of young love. The heated debate reflects the emergence of new values against the status quo in post-war Japan. A colossal box-office hit, Blue Mountains 2, came to symbolise efforts to liberate Japan of old, feudalist ideology. Combining young film stars, familiar themes, and a light-hearted treatment, Imai set his film apart from other works which sought the same issues but were sanctimonious.
