Don Colcord is the heart and soul of Nucla, Colorado, population 700. As the only pharmacist within hundreds of miles of this former mining town, Don works tirelessly to relieve his neighbours’ medical and economic burdens. Apothecary uncovers the poignant story behind Don’s selfless deeds, offering a beautifully textured portrait of a man, and a community, struggling to get by. Will Di Novi
