Masterpiece follows the story of Alyssa, an aspiring actress who auditions for a precocious couple (the Duponts). The Duponts demand that Alyssa pose still as a painter draws her, which is done as they berate her about strangely intimate details of her life. The comments escalate causing Alyssa to quit the audition and reconsider her career choice. Ultimately, the bizarre event was orchestrated by an outside force intent on doing just that.
