Plot summary

What is The Art of Racing in the Rain movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Art of Racing in the Rain" movie plot summary.

In Seattle, Enzo (Parker) is dying. The old Golden Retriever is waiting for Denny (Milo Ventimiglia), his master and best friend, to return home. When Denny finds Enzo unable to move, the dog begins to narrate his life for the viewer.
Years prior, Denny decides to purchase a puppy and immediately bonds with young Enzo. Denny divides his time between teaching auto racing and caring for Enzo, while also pursuing a career as a race driver. A year later, Denny meets a lady named Eve (Amanda Seyfried) while grocery shopping and the two begin to date.
After Denny and Eve marry the following year, Eve's mother, Trish (Kathy Baker), tries to be supportive, but her father, Maxwell (Martin Donovan), doesn't fully approve of Denny because of his career as a race driver. Eve becomes pregnant. On Christmas Day, Denny receives an invitation to drive in the 24 Hours of Daytona in February, which unfortunately takes place close to Eve's due date. She gives birth to a daughter named Zoë (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) at home with 2 midwives, while the TV in the adjacent room shows Denny racing in Florida, thus missing the birth.
A few years pass and family life is idyllic for Enzo, while Denny spends prolonged periods away from home to race. Eve begins to fall seriously ill and Enzo can smell a 'rotting wood' odor coming from her head. She is diagnosed with brain cancer, with she and Zoë living with her parents during her treatment. Resigned to her fate, Eve admits to Enzo that she is no longer afraid of death and passes away while he watches on.
Maxwell, who blames Denny's absence for Eve's illness, demands custody of Zoë and threatens to sue if Denny does not comply. Furious, Denny attempts to leave before being grabbed by Maxwell, who falls and breaks a rib in the resulting scuffle. Seeing an opportunity, Maxwell reports the incident to the police and Denny is arrested for 4th-degree assault. If he loses the case, Denny faces a 3-month jail sentence plus his in-laws taking permanent custody of his daughter.
