A young Venezuelan signs a billion-year contract with a notoriously secretive religion, goes to work on a 'floating church' cruise ship, falls in love, and is punished at a Western Sydney 'penal colony'.

This is a story told by former Hack host Steve Cannane in a new book on Scientology, called Fair Game.

He says Jose Navarro finally escaped from the punishment camp after years of hard labour and rotten food, and then hid in the Sydney Botanic Gardens.
