Pharmakon is set in a new-build, ghost-town resembling outskirt of Tirana. Branko, a young man, has recently returned to his hometown from his studies in the US. Branko’s life is ruled by his father, Dr. Sokrat, a celebrated oncologist, as he works for him in a façade-like pharmacy; set up as a cover for dubious activities of the prescription drugs business in which Dr. Sokrat is involved. One of Branko’s main duties is to find appropriate real estate for his father to invest his money in. It is a job he does reluctantly, like any other job. Branko leads a lonely life until he falls in love with Sara, a medical student working as a nurse, who might be his physician father’s secret lover.
