She is staring at a woman in a white dress with concern. The woman in white, standing next to the woman in black, has white hair and is wearing a sequined, silver dress, a large fur stole, and long gloves. She is pointing with her right hand down to the floor where, in the foreground, is the hand and upper torso of a dead man. The man is lying on the floor of both sides of the image. Next to the elderly woman is a red-haired woman. She is wearing a white jacket and a long red skirt. Her hands are clasped together, and she is looking at the woman in black. Behind the red-haired woman and the elderly woman is the head of a bearded man, and in the foreground is half of the back of a man in a fedora and dark jacket, smoking a cigar. In the middle of the two images (left edge and right edge) is a round table covered in a cloth, with keys, envelopes and a wallet on it, along with a small, lamp illuminating the room.
