Sitting in a strip club - the only woman there with her shirt on - Geralyn Lucas tries to blend in. She's come to make the biggest decision of her life - whether or not to get a mastectomy. Having recently graduated from journalism school and landed her dream job at "20/20," the last thing 27-year-old Geralyn expects to hear is a breast cancer diagnosis. Trying to find herself, while losing her vibrancy and her looks, Geralyn discovers a story of self-acceptance by relying on her courage, her humor and, of course, her red lipstick. It's sure to inspire all women.
