This children's film teaches the virtues of following a mother's sage advice by means of an allegory about a mother goat and her brood of seven kids. Once, when Mom had to leave to handle business at a fair in town, she locked the door behind her and told her offspring never to open the door to anyone except herself. Obedient to the letter, the seven refuse to budge when the nasty wolf comes along and imitates their mother's voice. Needless to say, the wolf gets the door opened by hook or by crook and makes off with two of the little goats. But not for long -- he finishes up in the freezing waters of a pond and the two goats make their way back to a very happy mother. This film won the Silver Cup at the 1977 Children's Film Festival in Venice.
