Description

In an impoverished former mining town in the American Southwest, the one oasis of activity is The Apothecary Shoppe — the sole pharmacy within 4,000 square miles. Don is the druggist and he gamely occupies multiple roles as surrogate doctor, life counselor and community benefactor. His sanguine public persona, however, belies a long-suffered private pain for which there is no drug, no cure and no relief…

With invited director Helen Hood Scheer
