Pretty easy to spot:

1...........Bxe3
2.fxe3 Qxg3+
3.Kh1 Qxh4+
4.Kg2 Re5 and black's edge should be decisive.

More interesting to me is what happens if white refuses the bishop? I would be tempted to just continue and take at f2 on move:

1...........Bxe3
2.Kg2 Bxf2
3.Kf2 e3+
4.Kg2 Re6 looks very promising with the threat of 5.....Rf6 and 6.......Rf2.

Qd6 is a better way to decline than Kg2 ... Bxf2 at that point is no good. (But simply Qxd6 Rxd6 Bc5 wins for black.)
