There is suspected suicide in the movie and references to one parent not being as close to the child as another (I don't know if this counts as abandonment). The child is 12 years old.

No, BUT... while neither member of the couple physically abuses their child and both of them love him, one of them is accused of neglecting him in favour of their work, the other says something disturbing to him, and both cause a lot of stress for the boy by arguing in front of him.

The nature of the couple's relationship is ambiguous and told from multiple unreliable points of view. The relationship is toxic and may be considered abusive on one or both of their parts. Nobody is forgiven.

The film is deliberately ambiguous about the nature of the couple's relationship and the power balance between them. Their relationship turns to a physical altercation, although this is only heard in an audio recording. Both suffer bruises. It is unclear who inflicted what on whom.

The film is deliberately ambiguous about the exact details of the couple's toxic relationship, and we get glimpses of what happened through unreliable narrators. In some of these recollections, there is gaslighting, or something that could be seen as gaslighting, by one member of the couple against another.

One of the central couple is bisexual and had cheated on the other one, but this is not depicted (although there may be onscreen flirtation, depending how you view it). There is also talk of the couple being in an open relationship in which the bisexual character had other partners but it is implied that this was not wholly consensual on the other person's part.

Debatable. The story is told - mostly verbally rather than shown - from multiple points of view by unreliable narrators. There are scenes in which the same moment is imagined in multiple ways by a character who was not there, and depicted for the audience.

There is an onscreen argument between a couple in which they speak aggressively at one another. There is an audio recording of them fighting, and one of them says the other hit themselves in the head. There are photographs of damaged walls, and it is claimed that this was the result of a character angrily punching them. An X-ray is shown of a broken finger, allegedly as a result of punching a wall.

Characters watch a re-enactment of a possible suicide from a distance, and the re-enactors are unaware. In a couple of scenes a character looks at a child sleeping. In one of them they pick the child up and carry them to bed.

A dead person is depicted from the side and above in a pool of blood, mostly from a distance. A small but significant wound is depicted on the side of a body's head. There is a photograph of three blood drops on a wall.
