Ils ont toujours voulu fonder leur existence sur des idéaux élevés. Lorsqu'ils emménagent dans leur nouvelle maison sur Revolutionary Road, ils proclament fièrement leur indépendance. Jamais ils ne se conformeront à l'inertie banlieusarde qui les entoure, jamais ils ne se feront piéger par les conventions sociales. Pourtant, malgré leur charme et leur insolence, les Wheeler deviennent exactement ce qu'ils ne voulaient pas : un homme coincé dans un emploi sans intérêt ; une ménagère qui rêve de passion et d'une existence trépidante. Une famille américaine ordinaire ayant perdu ses rêves et ses illusions. Décidée à changer de vie, April imagine un plan audacieux pour tout recommencer : quitter leur petite routine confortable dans le Connecticut pour aller vivre à Paris."
