Bud Caldwell is a young boy with his whole life ahead of him. He sets out in 1936 during The Great Depression in search of his father who he thinks just might be the very famous bandleader Herman E. Calloway. Told with great humor and a lively style, Christopher Curtis steals your heart with Bud, Not Buddy.
