Nagesh Kukunoor's 3 Deewarein is a story of three convicts on death row.

Jaggu (Jackie Shroff) is a lawyer and poet, who accepts his fate willingly. Nagya (Nagesh Kukunoor) is a man angry with the world, as he believes he was wrongly convicted. Ishaan (Naseeruddin Shah) is a happy-go-lucky charmer who hopes to escape from prison. They form a special friendship in the last mile of their lives.

Enter Chandrika (Juhi Chawla), a struggling documentary filmmaker who wants to make a film on the three. She has her own fair share of trouble like an abusive husband and a painful past. Slowly, a bond forms between the convicts and Chandrika, as they realise that they are somehow linked to each other.

Will Juggu die in the gallows? Will Ishaan escape? Is Nagya innocent? What is Chandrika's past?
