Synopsis: Enzo is a lab terrier mix plucked from a farm outside Seattle to ride shotgun with race car driver Denny Swift as he pursues success on the track and off. Denny meets and marries Eve, has a daughter, ZoŽ, and risks his savings and his life to make it on the professional racing circuit. Enzo, frustrated by his inability to speak and his lack of opposable thumbs, watches Denny's old racing videos, coins koanlike aphorisms that apply to both driving and life, and hopes for the day when his life as a dog will be over and he can be reborn a man. Description in Spanish: 'El arte de conducir bajo la lluvia lo tiene todo: amor, tragedia, redencion, peligro y lo mejor, el narrador canino Enzo, cuya alma de perro longevo tiene mucho que ensenarnos sobre el ser humano. En Mongolia, cuando un perro muere es enterrado en lo alto de la montana para que nadie pueda pisar su tumba. El dueno del perro le susurra al oido que desea que se reencarne, en su proxima vida, en un hombre. Hasta entonces, el alma del perro es libre de vagar por la tierra y sus paisajes, durante el tiempo que quiera. Solo algunos perros se reencarnan en hombres, unicamente los que estan listos para ello. Yo estoy listo. Esto lo aprendi viendo un programa de National Geographic en la television, asi que debe de ser verdad. Vivo con Danny, y he aprendido tanto de el, he aprendido los principios para ser un buen piloto de carreras. Equilibrio, anticipacion, paciencia. Estas son lecciones muy importantes, tanto para la vida como para una pista de carreras. Danny es un verdadero campeon, aunque no todos lo vean asi, porque Danny tiene responsabilidades. Tiene a su hija Zoe, y tiene a su esposa Eve. Y me tiene a mi. Lo que mas me gusta es correr por la hierba con la cabeza baja, sintiendo como las gotas de agua del rocio me salpican la cara. Me gusta correr y sentir todos los olores, toda la vida. Cuando yo regrese a este mundo voy a volver como un hombre, y voy a caminar entre vosotros. Voy a estrechar vuestras manos. Y cuando vea a un hombre, o a una mujer, o a un nino en problemas, voy a ofrecerle mi mano, a el, a ella, a ti. Al mundo. Voy a ser un buen ciudadano, un buen amigo en el camino de la vida que todos compartimos.
