    Black is up material so there are many options that win, but the easiest way is probably through forcing moves that end up winning the queen (for rook and bishop) with a fork.

    A. 1. … Rh1+ 2.Kg3 f4+ 3.Kh4 Qxg2 3.Qc3 g5+ 4.Nxg5 BxN#
    B. 1. … Rh1+ 2.KxR Qc1+ 3.Kh2 Bf4+ 4.g3 BxQ 5.NxB Qxb2 etc.

      Except that you are missing 1. Rh1+; 2. Kh1 Qc1+; 3. Rd1, when Black has nothing better than 2. Qd1 and a slow win by extra material.
