KJ Apa is a man on the move in his newest role.

PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at the trailer for the Riverdale alum's R-rated action-adventure film One Fast Move. In it, he plays Wes, "a young man down on his luck who seeks out his estranged father (Eric Dane) to help him pursue his dream of becoming a professional motorcycle racer."

"With the help of his small-town love interest and a motorcycle-shop owner who moonlights as his mentor, he begins to break down the walls that his father’s absence had built up," the synopsis adds.

At the start of the trailer, Wes (Apa, 27) is seen being released from prison and facing a tough transition back into life and employment, before connecting with his estranged dad, Dean (Dane, 51).

After clearing some seemingly awkward hurdles regarding Dean's relationship with his mother, Wes is shown learning about the art of racing under the tutelage of his father.

"Hey, -

look at that, I taught him that outside pass!" Dean proudly proclaims at one point as he watches his son in action.

"The faster I go, the calmer I feel," Wes says near the end of the trailer.

"So you just need to keep going faster," Dean replies.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, director Kelly Blatz said One Fast Move "was inspired by my love for classic, exhilarating sports dramas likeThe Fighter, Ford v. Ferrari andRocky."

"As a devoted motorcycle enthusiast, I couldn't help but notice the absence of a film centered around the thrilling sport of motorcycle racing," he continued. "With One Fast Move, my team and I dedicated ourselves to creating an authentic film that captures the excitement and danger of motorcycle racing, while also delivering a compelling, character-driven drama."

Both directed and written by Blatz, 37, the film also stars Edward James Olmos and Maia Reficco, and is distributed by Amazon MGM Studios.

One Fast Move is streaming Aug. 8 on Prime Video.
