An insolent goat tricks a man into fighting with his family, then takes over the house of a hare, who calls on other forest animals to help get her out.

The visual style of the film was influenced by Ukrainian artists Hanna Sobachko-Shostak (a PDF of a 1965 booklet with some of her art can be downloaded here) and Maria Primachenko (source).

There are at least two versions of this film out there, one with just the music and another with Ukrainian voices. There is also a badly-done Russian-voiced version, which is not present here.

The first video above is the Ukrainian-language version, has the best quality and is in the original theatrical 24fps frame rate (though there's an audio glitch at 8:02). The second video has only the music and no dialogue (it was sometimes shown like this on Russian television).
