Why Watch? Because all week long we’ll be featuring short films featuring the gang from Community.

Today’s features the dramatic side of Alison Brie.

To break up the all the comedy that’s been hitting this column during Community week, here’s a taut short about a father’s impossible decision to do right by his daughter by killing the man who destroyed her life. Brie plays the daughter, and is featured minorly here, but the film grabs you by the balls in the first scene, grabs you by your emotional balls in the next, and doesn’t let go even after the credits roll. That’s thanks to the writing and direction of Mark Apicella as well as a hell of a tortured performance from Brian Keith Russell.

How do you make a decision that takes another man’s life?

What Will It Cost? Just 16 minutes of your time.

Check out Salvation, Texas for yourself:
