    Yates movingly portrays a man and a woman from their courtship in the 1950s to their divorce in the 70s, chronicling their heartbreaking attempts to reach their highest ambitions. Michael Davenport dreams of being a poet after returning home from World War II, and at first, he and his new wife, Lucy, enjoy their life together. But as the decades pass and the success of others creates a fear of failure in both Michael and Lucy, their once bright future gives way to a life of adultery and isolation.

Frank og April Wheeler bor i et nydeligt lille hus for enden af Revolutionary Road i et helt nyt forstadskvarter i Connecticut. Frank pendler til New York og sit kontorjob hver dag. April går hjemme hos børnene.

    Frank e April Wheeler sono una coppia middle class dei sobborghi benestanti di New York. Coltivano il proprio anticonformismo con ingenuità, quasi con ipocrisia; si sentono destinati a una vita creativa, magari in Europa, dove esprimere la propria passione. Ma sotto la superficie di una vita apparentemente felice la giovane famiglia nasconde una tensione pronta a esplodere con la prepotenza di un dramma shakespeariano. Uno dei racconti più intensi e penetranti della narrativa americana.
