She was just trying to be generous and good, but he jumped up and began screaming at her and pointing his finger in her face. What is going on?

She = 1nd Her = 2rd Her
He = His

She = HAF
He = HAM

Did he literally do that to her? Was he sad/angry/disappointed/frightened/jealous/happy/neutral?

Was there a good reason for him jumping and screaming and pointing? Jumped up from where? Normal ground level? Other?
Was she trying to be generous and good to him, or just in general?
