Iím Dangerous with Love is an underground adventure that traces one manís risky journey into the world of shamanic ritual. Dimitri Mugianis had been addicted to heroin for 20 years when a single dose of ibogaine, a powerful hallucinogen derived from the root of a West African plant, stopped his addiction cold.Filmmaker Michel Negroponte (Methadonia, Jupiter's Wife) enters the ibogaine subculture and follows Dimitri over three years, as he takes drug users through the same detox that saved his life. Problem is, ibogaine is an illegal drug in the U.S. When Negroponte tries ibogaine himself, he experiences firsthand its propensity to "break open the head."
