The story takes place at East Great Falls High, ten years after the events of American Pie. The new protagonists of this movie are three brand new hapless virgins: Rob (Hall), Nathan (Horton), and Lube (Hardesty). One night Rob accidentally sets fire to the school library, and finds "the Bible" (or Book of Love), the creation of Mr. Levinstein (Eugene Levy). Unfortunately for them, the book is ruined. The book had incomplete advice and sends them on a helpless journey to lose their virginity. After trying and failing for most of the time, they pledge to restore the book, and to do this, they must find Levenstein and all the other people who wrote in the book, and start the restoration.
