In this talk we will outline proof due to Plameneveskaya and Van-Horn
Morris that every virtually overtwisted contact structure on L(p,1) has a
unique Stein filling. We will give a much simplified proof of this
result. In addition, we will talk about classifying Stein fillings of
($L(p,q), \xi_{std})$ using only mapping class group basics.
