This psychedelic plant root hails from Africa, where it has been used in religious ceremonies through countless generations. A burgeoning movement in the West has promoted iboga as a quick fix route to painless withdrawal.
Now David wants to find out how truly effective iboga is. In a Dutch suburb, several addicts embark on the long night of psychedelic detox under the watchful eye of an experienced Iboga practitioner. One client collapses and ends up on life support, the provider is jailed and David starts to question the safety of iboga treatment.
The film culminates with a nerve-wracking iboga session in London where the director himself administers the treatment. How does the filmmaker weigh up the ethics of involving himself so deeply in this controversial detox option and what will be his final resolve on its efficacy?
