Such is Life in the Tropics (original Spanish title: Sin muertos no hay carnaval, English: Without the Dead, There is No Carnival) is a 2016 Ecuadorian drama directed by Sebastian Cordero and co-produced by Mexico and Germany. It was submitted as Ecuador's entry for Best Foreign Language film at the 2017 Academy Awards.

In Guayaquil, Ecuador, a wealthy young man faces the arduous task of evicting 250 families that are squatting on his family's land. While at first hoping for a peaceful resolution, a stray bullet sets off a tragic chain of events.

The following weapons were used in the film Such is Life in the Tropics:



Beretta 92FS

Ruger 10/22

Winchester Model 88

Gustavo Miranda (Erando Gonzalez) uses a Winchester Model 88 during the deer hunt, notably using it to accidentally shoot the German child. Gustavo, being responsible for the shot that caused the death of the child, later decides to hide the rifle to cover-up the incident.
