Jennifer Garner did not hold anything back while shooting an emotional scene at a Los Angeles beach on Tuesday.

Dressed in an all-black suit, the actress was seen carrying an urn and throwing ashes into the ocean as she broke down into sobs while getting drenched by the waves. The scene was for Garner's upcoming new movie, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, where she plays a mother of two teenagers who is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Medina, the daughter, turns to surfing as an escape when things get volatile at home.
