Black to move! How should black proceed?

This was a game between Daniel Fridman vs Alex Lenderman (Caleta, 2010)

White is threating to take on e5+ so we can not let this happen and play Qg4+ driving the King to an important square to force the mating sequence so white does not have time, Kh2 Rxg2+, King has to take the rook or mate in one...Kxg2, Qe2+. If King h3 Qf1+, notice how white's pieces are frozen in time and can not take the Knight that is guarding the g4 square! Kh2, Nf3 mate. If King after Qe2+ goes to g1 then Nf3+ followed by Qh2 mate! Or g1:)

No. 1-2
