For people like Hughes' right-hand man, Glyn Edwards, who has found love in a new country, and Anna Parry, a Welsh orphan who has found fulfilment working in Hughesovka's hospital, the city is a chance to build a new life - but fresh arrivals from their hometown have come to cause trouble and threaten the peace and stability of that new existence.
