Bruce, a sales executive, is in a love triangle with two sisters.

Paula snaps, trying to kill him with a pair of scissors, and winds up in an asylum, where she appears to relive the event again and again.

Indexer Notes

Strong penciller, but Alascia turns in an exceptional ink job here and effectively masks him. This MIGHT be Bernie Krigstein, but it's literally impossible to tell.
