The movie reveals Roszko’s story, a man who terrorized his community for years with threats and intimidation, yet somehow managed to avoid a lengthy jail sentence despite facing numerous arrests and criminal charges. “Mayerthorpe” examines the decade-long battle between Roszko and the local RCMP, headed by fictional character Corporal Alex Stanton. As their relationship becomes increasingly tense, the movie hurtles towards a violent and bitter conclusion to Roszko’s life of crime – the day that many believed was inevitable.
