    It seems the key move is that initial Kf2.  from that point there are many variations, but no matter what black does, white has a response that will lead to a draw, either by stalemate or by simply clearing the board of all the pieces.  It is hard to find a blunder by black that would allow white to win, but it is impossible for black to win unless white makes a blunder (and the correct responses for white are not too hard to see at that point.)   Previous commenters have shown a number of the variations.  In several of them, white uses the principle of maintaning opposition against the black king to force a draw.

    Nice puzzle.  If the solution isn't a last-ditch effort, none exists.  Really cool.
