Í einum skøkjuhúsi í Berlin skiftast kvinnurnar um kundarnar, servera í pausurúminum og røja menninar. Maria, tann nýggja vóngóða italska gleðisgentan, varnast beinanvegin Sashu, og hvussu hon hevur tatoveringar, piercingar og skrivar yrkingar í fríløtunum. Mótsætt henni hevur Sasha fest røtur í skøkjuhúsinum, har hon hevur arbeitt í fleiri ár. Tær báðar gerast skjótt ógviliga væl, og romantikkurin blomstrar. Sasha tekur Mariu við sær til gomlu heimbygdina, har ið 11 ára gamli sonurin býr saman við pápanum. Tá taka trupulleikar seg upp, og teirra ástarævintýr skal standa sína roynd.

Glück er fyrsti spælifilmur Henriku, sum er ein virðilig, beinrakin og innilig lýsing av sexarbeiðarum.

In a Berlin brothel the woman are altering between clients, waiting in the break room and lining up for the next John. Maria, who is the new confident Italian girl, immediately catches Sasha’s attention, with her tattoos, piercings, and her poetry writing during the breaks. Sasha on the other hand is well-rooted in the brothel, where she has been working for years. The two quickly develop an intense kinship which reveals a genuine romance. Sasha brings Maria to her old village where her 11-year-old son is living with his father, where vulnerabilities surface, and barriers test their optimistic love story.

Glück is Henrikas debut feature film which is authentically filmed with an intimate unique portrayal of sex workers, which is respectfully and refreshingly raised.
