The Master is a drama set in the United States in the 50's. Freddie (Joaquin Phoenix) served in the Navy during World War II. He returns home after the war strongly affected by what he experienced here, without a job and uncertain about the future.
He stumbles upon a faith-based cult that engages in emotion-relieving exercises, led by the charismatic and intellectual Lancaster Dodd, also known as "The Master" (Phillip Seymor Hoffman). And men like Dodd know how to take advantage of a young traumatized daydreamer like Freddie.
