The short film called Child Lost on Goolumbulla is based on just one scene in the novel -which depicts the story of a helpless child lost in the bush. Andrew Furphy - a direct descendant of Joseph Furphy, produced the film with actor John Derum who also acted in the film and voiced the audio book of Furphy's original Such is Life.
