    Looks like the woman with a broom on fire beating the man. Who looks about the same age as the woman, could be his wife. An older woman, [maybe a mother] in intervening on behalf of the young man. And it looks like two woman in the hay.
    My opinion is: The wife caught her husband in the hay with 2 woman and threaten to set fire to the hay. He come running out of the hay with the wife beating him with the torch and his Mother was trying to save him.
