"Apple Mortgage Cake," the inspiring true story of Angela Logan who when faced with foreclosure set a goal to bake 100 cakes in 10 days to save her home. The film starts four-time NAACP Image Award winner Kimberly Elise. Apple Mortgage Cake will premiere exclusively on UP on Easter Sunday, April 20 at 7 p.m. EST.

Angela Logan (Kimberly Elise) is a single, working mom with three teenage boys, Marcus (A.J. Saudin), William (Stephan James) and Nicolas (Lamar Johnson) in Teaneck, NJ. She juggles various jobs and helps with employment counseling at the local Mission. While thrilled to be in the family home where she learned to bake, the house is falling apart, with sections deemed uninhabitable by inspectors after storm and flood damage. She has always made due until now – when her lender calls in the mortgage loan and puts her into foreclosure. Angela has 10 days to come up with $4000 or she loses her home.

The movie is the true story of a woman who decides to bake 100 apple cakes and sell them at $40 each in order to save her home – and how this idea completely changes her and her family. As word of her “bake sale” ripples out through neighbors, friends, her church and even old flames, such as Melvin (Kevin Hanchard), the story soon spreads to the news, locally, nationally and internationally. Angela is taken off guard by the overwhelming support. But soon, this fiercely independent woman learns to depend on the kindness and love of others that comes her way.

Thecast also includes A.J. Saudin, Gemini Award winner Gabrielle Miller, Joanne Boland, Paul De La Rosa, Gemini Award winner Catherine Disher, Peter Williams, Siobhan Murphy, Barry Flatman, Darlene Cooke and Millie Davis. The real-life Angela Logan makes a cameo appearance.
