Goal for 20min. presentation at math conference?

I've been invited to give a 20 minute talk at a mathematics conference in a couple months. The audience members all work in my field, so they will be familiar with most of the terminology and background. I have plenty of material to pull from a preprint I've already submitted to journals, and it seems I have two reasonable options:Option A. Present everything to communicate the over-arching theme of my research. I could provide several very minimal proof sketches along the way.Option B. Present one very interesting result (with its lemmas), with more detailed proofs. I could then "sprint" through some related results at the end, or avoid them entirely.Which will be most valuable to the audience members? Which will make me "look the best"?
