Never believe what you see online. Relationships look happy and peaceful, but they can be anything other than that. TikTok Star Murders gives us a look inside one of the most prolific relationships on the social media app.

Ali and Ana Abulaban appeared to have the perfect relationship. They would post happy TikToks, hinting that they had a marriage that was drama free and full of trust.

We would later find out that this was all a charade. Their relationship was anything but drama-free, with Ali now convicted of killing Ana and her friend, Rayburn Cardenas Barron. Ali was charged in January 2022, and was convicted of first-degree murder in May 2024.

What was the relationship really like on the other side of the camera? That’s something TikTok Star Murders goes into. The trailer gives just a shot of the abusive behavior, with interviewees speaking about how Ali trapped Ana in the marriage.

Those involved in the interviews are close friend sand family of Ali and Ana. They give us a look at the physical abuse Ana faced and had to hide. There is also commentary from Kelsey Christensen, a reporter who interviewed Ali upon his request.
