Winner of 3 Israeli Academy Awards – On the night she was engaged in an affair with another man, Palestinian guerillas arrived in secret by sea and stormed into the beachfront Savoy day-use hotel and took Kohava Levi, her lover, and other guests, hostage. To save her life and honor, the 31-year-old married housewife transformed herself, overnight, into a fearless heroine. However, by dawn, she was left with only shame. Savoy intimately chronicles a life changed – all in one night.
