SUMMARY OF MOVIE
A Dog’s Purpose a novel story which is written by W. Bruce Cameron and screenplay by Cathryn Michon. In this movie, they are sharing the soulful and unexpected story of one faithful dog. who finds the purpose or meaning of his own life through the lives of human he teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the passage of five decades, the lovely pooch develops a solid bond with a related spirit named Ethan (Bryce Gheisar). As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self.
it is not a story where at the end of the chapter the dog dies. That’s not a spoiler signal because the entire assumption of the novel is that the dog never dies—he keeps being reborn, remembering each life, discovering lessons from each life that help him with the next one. Eventually, he comes to assume there must be a purpose, a reason for him to be reborn, and until he has figured out that purpose, he’ll keep being reborn, over and over again.
