Musician Oleg wonders around the town aimlessly. In the Russian sauna (banya) he meets Sanya, who is bandit and proud of it. Sanya like to tell tales, especially about who he killed or what crimes he has commited. But this time, apart from usual showing off, he has one story that is completely different - story of the Bell Tower of Happiness. Somewhere between Sankt Petersburg and Uglich, near an abandoned nuclear power plant, there is area, where massive electromagnetic emission killed all the people. There was no explosion, no catastrophy, just sudden emission that left the area abandoned and constantly covered with snow. Supposedly there is still some radiation, but the most important bit of that story is the bell tower.

Sanya heard that the bell tower gives happiness to people, who will reach it, there are rumors that people who will enter the bell tower are transfered to another planet, where there is nothing but happiness. Oleg is skeptical, but on the other hand there is no harm in trying to reach the bell tower and gain happiness. Sanya takes Oleg and they set out for the mysterious area, but on the way Sanya has one more thing to take care of - he has to help his friend Yura escape from the hospital, where he is treated for alcoholism. Together with Sanya’s father and young girl Alisa, who is a prostitute running away from her pimp, they reach the area Sanya was talking about. There is army guarding the entrance, but they are given the order to let anyone enter - it doesn’t really matter, since no one has ever comed back...

Me Too is in a way Russian sci fi movie, although it is also a drama depicting the basic human nature from the point of view of modern Russia. At more than one point it is similar to stories based on Roadside Picnic by Strugatsky brothers and lacks a bit originality, the plot is rather simple, but still it is not bad movie that raises interesting questions about humanity.
