Endgame Magic #168

The position below is from the game M. Lokander vs S. Movsesian, Bundesliga 2019-2021. Black is a bishop up but White has two dangerous passed pawns and it is Black who has to fight for a draw. Black can survive with correct play but in the game Movsesian missed the right defense. Can you do better? (The solution is revealed at the beginning of the show.)
